Mill Lane, Midhurst

No items found.

Parking

Use the location on the google maps link, and there's a lay-by for several cars arching round a large tree.

Terrain

Quite hilly in parts with some steep sections, mix of woodland trails and long sandy paths. No stiles, couple of stepped bridges and some trails quite uneven.

Water

There is a stream here but in truth it looked a little stagnant and not a great water spot for dogs. We went in a wet season though, and on the long flat sandy paths there were some great big puddles which Hank loved running through.

Poo Bins

No bins here

About My Walk

This is a really beautiful forest, and a great find. It's definitely one to make sure you have a GPS app, I couldn't find any maps other than the public footpath one but there are lots of trails and paths that are not on this, and it's a large area so easy to get lost if you're not familiar with it.

Our walk was about an hour and a half, and from the lay-by we followed the path up the hill and tried to keep as straight as possible to start with ignoring the paths coming off the main track. We came to a bridge just past the pylons, and went further up the track beyond this and about half a kilometre on there's a crossroads and we went right. This path eventually takes you down and over the little stream. When you cross the stream there's a steep hill ahead of you, but if you take the narrow track turning right this will take you back parallel along the stream. You feel like you're deep in the forest but then all of a sudden you walk past a remote pretty cottage out of nowhere, turn right again back over the stream past the house and the paths will eventually lead you back on to the main strip that you walked in on.

It's very quiet here, we only came across one other person in an hour and a half so a great place to get away from it all and explore, and in October with the Autumn leaves it was particularly beautiful. It can be used by horses, and there are a couple of pheasant enclosures so just a couple of things to watch out for with your dog.
