A beautiful circular walk of two halves: the first half is on fairly level ground along country tracks with lovely views of the hills to come! The second half takes you up onto those hills, with superb, far-reaching views. There are two start points for this walk, East Meon with its superb village pub, or the quiet hamlet of Ramsdean. The latter is an ideal start point if you want to take sandwiches to eat halfway round whilst taking in the glorious views from the top of Park Hill.

Dog-owners may find it useful to know that most of the stiles are dog-friendly, but there are a couple at the beginning of the walk that my Labrador couldn't manage on his own. I have suggested an alternative short diversion around them though.

Please note that a couple of tracks on the first half of the walk can be very muddy at wet times of the year. There is one track at Waymark 8 that is always wet, so wear appropriate footwear and enjoy it! It only lasts for 450 metres and it is a glorious quiet haven where you are likely to see lots of birds and wildlife.

Did this starting at Ramdean on a dry October day. Lunch in the George at East Meon which was 5 star although a bit pricey. Great views on the latter part of the outward leg. From point 4 to 5 one of the stiles which was hard for dogs is now a kissing gate and the second one has a large hole under it which anything but a huge dog could negotiate. Point 7 suggested you walk diagonally left across to the far field corner. Point 9 the horse trough has gone and the stile is hidden in hedge. Easier to find if you go to the right hand field corner then turn left up the hedge when it appears.

2-5-11 Tricia Daw Excellent directions again from Sylvia! We thoroughly enjoyed this walk. Fantastic views. It's worth knowing that the other pub in East Meon, the Isaac Welton, has an arrangement to offer public toilet services - excellent as long as you're not walking on a Monday when it's shut! We completed the walk on a gloriously sunny but very windy day. There was not a hint of anywhere being wet underfoot - quite the opposite in this unseasonally dry spell we've had. We walked on Bank Holiday Monday and returned to East Meon's Country Fair in full swing.

Did this walk on Wed.20th. As Sylvia states this walk is one of two halves. In my case that meant half in fog with barely 150m visability and the other bit in brilliant warmish sunshine when the views from Park Hill were quite stunning. This is an excellent walk from a favourite starting point of mine. I will of course do this walk again to see what I missed on the first part!Sylvia mentions the track after waymark 8. Although fairly easily passable it is nevertheless in a terrible state-worse than a ploughed field in parts. It is a byway and has been used a lot, I would imagine, by motorised vehicles. It's a pity that something can't be done about the blatant destruction. However,thank you for this fine easy to follow walk. Ray Churcher.
