Excellent walk on tracks and paths. There are three comments for the route For [3] add "ignore path forking right" For [5] add "keep to eastern edge of access land" after "enter access land at Millpond bottom". Section [6] the route description is correct but the erection of new fences, new stiles, bird feeders and many "Private, No Access" signs caused confusion. There was no clear marking of entry points to the access land. We followed the right of way on our brand new OS 50 000 map.

Have walked this and varied routes around Harting Down many times. It cannot be beaten for views and wide open vistas in this part of the world. Can be muddy in places and the climb up Beacon Hill is very tough, but worth the effort.
