Meeting point: Stepping Stones Car Park (National Trust)
For all those who have signed up to walk the Monster South Downs Walk on 23rd June, there will be a series of walk in the evening on a Tuesday doing 3 laps of Box Hill as a fitness boast to get us ready for the big day. We will start will climbing up from the stepping stones to the top of Box Hill and then walking down the slope to Rykes Car Park and back around to the bottom of the Stepping Stones. Please note that the Stepping Stones Car Park is National Trust and charges apply.
Please bring a head torch, as the walk will end in the dark.
Easy Walks are for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, a specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Suitable for pushchairs if they can be lifted over occasional obstructions. Comfortable shoes or trainers can be worn.
Leisurely Walks are for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths.
Moderate Walks are for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths and open country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are highly recommended.
Strenuous Walks are for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. May include hills and rought country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness are advised to contact the walk leader in advance.
Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.
All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
