Longer walk: Devil's Punch Bowl

This is a 10 mile walk that starts in the National Trust car park in London Road, Hindhead, GU26 6AB (see map).

The 'Fancy Free Walks' web site describes the walk:

This remarkable walk takes you on an excursion on rarely-used paths into Hampshire to visit that picturesque string of lakes in the forest. On the way, you pass through an ever-changing landscape of deep wooded valleys, heather-topped crests and moors.

There are just one or two patches with nettles and brambles, so bare legs might be uncomfortable. The terrain is generally firm, so strong walking shoes or trainers should be fine. There is 150m along a main road and three low stiles just before the lakes but these should not prevent your dog from joining you.

We will meet to car share at 9.15 in the West Town car park.

I suggest a packed lunch. There's a pub in Grayshott about ¾ into the walk where we can stop for some refreshment.

This is the planned route:
