A fairly direct route which includes some great views of the Hogs Back near Wanborough and either Guildford Cathedral and/ or the North Downs on the outskirts of Guildford.

The route includes some in town pavement walking for the first 2.7km section leaving Aldershot station and the last 1.4km coming into Guildford town centre. Having said that around 1/3 of the walk is in open countryside with some lovely views. As you come into Guildford between the A31 and just past Henley Fort, the marked path takes you on a tree lined path. However there are 3 options of path here and by taking the paths on either side of the trees and hedges you benefit from the amazing views. The path to the north with views of the Cathedral , Woking and beyond runs the same length from the A31. The path to the south with views of the North Downs and open countryside starts a bit closer to Guildford with paths leading across to it from around the pylons.

Please note this walk requires caution at two major road crossings. Firstly at 2.14km from Aldershot station when crossing a major roundabout junction over the A331 and Secondly at 11.85km when crossing the A31 , which is a major road into Guildford although single carriageway and with a $0mph speed limit at this point.
