We walked this with our dog on a Sunday. It was very busy as it is a combined walking,cycling and horseriding track. Very nice all the same. There is a small car park at the northern end opposite the garage. Good birdwatching opportunities as well....More

This used to be such a beautiful walk until selfish dog owners ruined it by not picking up after their dogs. I walked here yesterday with friends who were visiting the area & was totally embarrassed by the amount of dogs mess. It is everywhere...More

Fairly clean, places to stop sand rest with seating, quiet and a good route to relax. You can see views to Portsmouth Spinnaker Tower and there some mini beach areas as well. Note: Despite what many might state, there are NO Blackberries on this line...More
