This run will give you a small glimpse of what the Surrey hills has to offer, with woodland trails taking you through some of the most picturesque spots around the area.
This route start in Hurtwood car park 6 radar site. From here you head east along the Greensand Way for a short while before taking a long gradual decent down through woodland. Before making the climb back up to the view point of Pitch Hill. Views all across the South Downs and even the sea of a clear day. Heading back on the Greensand for a short time you see the Ewhurst windmill. Before crossing a road to take a right hand turn and another decent down a rocky path. This takes you on a small loop back up to the Greensand Way again for the short section you started on back to the car park. The route takes in around 1000 feet of elevation all on trail.
From the car park, head down the steps to the stepping stones at the stream, crossing here. Climb up to the good path, following the woodland trail high above Wyming Brook. Continue to the end of the trail, where you meet another good but rocky and technical in parts path which descends to the reservoir. Go along the side of the dam to the wide, bridal path back through the woods. Ascending gradually to the path junction, go right here. As the good path continues right, over a bridge, you want to take the small, often muddy path climbing to the left, following the small stream. At the top of the climb, follow the fence line along the top of the woods back to the car park.

Everywhere I've lived I've had a spot. A place on one of my favourite running routes that I couldn't help but stop for a moment to relax and take it in. Maes Knoll is my spot in Somerset. The peacefulness, the views to all sides, and imagining the hill fort that once stood there... it captivates me every time.
