A beautiful circular walk in the South Downs, as expected quite hilly, with soft ups and downs and a different stunning view with every turn. It starts from the Duncton Hill viewpoint car park - even there you are met with a fantastic view! Then after a gentle climb through woodland the route bursts out on to the open downs with spectacular, far-reaching views. There is a lot of variety along well-defined tracks; dipping into woodland where there is a good chance you may see some deer. Then back out on to the downs again, with a wealth of chalk downland flowers and butterflies in the summer months. Do this walk on a clear day to appreciate the far-reaching scenery. As this walk is always very good underfoot, it's also a good one for the winter months. There are no stiles and my dog had no problems with the gates. He really enjoyed it too!
This walk has now been revised to avoid the road at the end.
See Sylvia's comment about avoiding the busy road at the start of this walk.
