Stoughton Down trail

Working on it……….

Stoughton Down and Kingley Vale is a 7.1 kilometer loop trail located near Stoughton, West Sussex, England that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, running, and bird watching.

A circular walk in a really picturesque part of the South Downs National Park. The walk begins in Stoughton Down before climbing high into the Kingley Vale Nature Reserve where the climb is rewarded with spectacular views both to the north and south. The walk then descends to the pretty village of Stoughton before returning to the car park.

The walk has one long climb and an equivalent descent. The tracks are all fairly wide and are, in the most, well made with stone with only a few parts under the trees that can get quite muddy. The last mile of the route is along a quiet country road. There are no stiles or gates to negotiate so, if you’re up for the challenge, it would be possible to get a rugged push chair around the route. Approximate time 2 hours.
