This lovely area of the Surrey Hills is a popular place for walkers and cyclists. Winterfold Wood and the adjacent Hurt Wood have many miles of footpaths and bridleways which are suitable for mountain bikers.
There are Hurtwood Control car parks on Greensand Lane where you can start your walk or ride. The car park is near to a number of mountain bike trails including the Charles Bronson and the Northern Monkey. These are located just south of the car park. You can see them marked on the open street map link below. There's also the Secret Santa trail. See the video below to give you an idea of what you can expect on this exhilarating ride.
For walkers there are miles of woodland trails with some decent climbs, picnic areas and great viewpoints.
This circular route starts at the Hurtwood Control car park on Winterfold Hill and follows bridleways to the northern part of the forest, visiting Winterfold Heath and Reynards Hill.
The Greensand Way long distance footpath passes through the woods. If you follow it east you can visit Hurt Wood, Pitch Hill and climb to Holmbury Hill. The hill stands at an impressive 856 feet (261 m), giving fine views over the surrounding area.
