Now that the warmer weather persists, it’s a great time to put on the hiking boots for a hike. The Surrey countryside offers plenty to admire and there are many walking trails across the county.
Those looking for a place in Surrey to get in touch with nature should look no further than the Denbies Hillside nature walk. A dog friendly trail that can take around two hours, great for some peace and quiet.
The trail is about two miles long and provides a great opportunity to clear your head. Plus, there’s a good chance you’ll see some wildlife along the way.

The walk takes visitors along part of the North Downs Way National Trail and includes grassland and woodland. Keep an eye out for cows and the British Bee Orchid along the walk.
Start the hike at the Denbies Hillside parking lot and walk south through the marked opening into Steers Field. There are picnic benches here, so it’s a great place to refuel before you really embark on the walk, or to enjoy after.
The National Trust guide to the walk says: “This field opens up to stunning views of Leith Hill with Dorking to your left and Holmbury Hill to your right. Following the orange Denbies Hillside Nature Trail markers, pass through the gates into the forest .”
The full itinerary is available on the National Trust website.
