Haslemere Circular Walk

8 miles (13 km)

This fine circular walk takes you around the Surrey town of Haslemere. It's a varied walk with woodland, heathland and hills climbs to enjoy. From the high points you can also enjoy fine views across the lovely countryside of the South Downs National Park.
The walk starts from Haslemere train station and heads through the town before heading south to Valewood Farm House. Here you can pick up the Sussex Border Path and the Serpent Trail. These long distance trails will take you up onto Black Down. The National Trust run area includes a series of well defined paths taking you to flower-rich meadows, ancient woodland and copses. There are fabulous views over the Weald from the Temple of the Winds, at the southern end of the down, which is the highest point in the South Downs.
After taking the views the route descends west toward Fenhurst before turning north toward Marley Heights and Marley Common. The common has miles of good footpaths taking you to heathland, woodland and meadows. Look out for the pretty purple heather in the summer months and the yellow flowering gorse all year round.
The final section follows footpaths through Camelsdale before finishing back at the train station.
To continue your walking in the Haslemere area you could try the nice footpaths on Ludshott Common and Bramshott Common.
The Greensand Way also passes the town. One good option is to follow the waymarked trail north to visit the Devil's Punch Bowl. Here you'll find a splendid large naturalamphitheatreand beauty spot run by the National Trust.
