TERRAIN: Hard
OS MAP: Chichester

Walk description:

Park in the main car park by the centre. Take the track to the left of the centre buildings and investigate the pond the other side of the buildings. Follow the track to the tarmac road. Straight over onto the gravel track and round the single bar gate. When you come to a fork take the left prong. Follow this track to the summit of the hill where you will find a deep fenced in dew pond. Return via the same route. This is the official disabled route in the QECP that they recommend for their own mobility scooters (available for free).


Additional notes:

Please note the walk to the summit is steep in places.
The centre does have a shop, toilets and a cafe and maps of the site available to purchase. They also have mobility scooters available but it is recommended you phone ahead to book. Visit www.hants.gov.uk/qecp.
I would suggest only using the initial track to the left of the centre after a spell of dry weather else use the main tarmac road.

A hard walk

This was quite a steep incline for most of all the way. The Dew Pod is easy to miss if you are not looking for
it. The good thing was it downhill on the way back. If you do go to Queen Elizabeth Country Park there is a
more even walk along by the reception, if you don,t feel up to a steep hill.
