CROOKSBURY HILL & GREENSANDS WAY

Distance 10 miles
Total Ascent 350 metres
Walking Time 4 hours plus lunch
This woodland walk starts off flat through historical Moor park and on to the picturesque village green at Tilford. This walk is a good introduction to the Hike to Indulge's fast pace but not too hilly. Lunch is at the traditional Barley Mow pub known for its hardy homemade cooking. We do have a few hours walking before lunch and a short but rewarding climbing up to the views of Crooksbury Hill. This hilltop was even mentioned in a Sherlock Holmes short story, The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist. It is a fairly easy walk back to Farnham along a section of the North Downs trail. Newbies to the group are very welcome on this hike but it is highly recommended you have previous walking, running or cycling experience. This is no stroll.
