Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to be more active and healthier.  Like other physical activities, walking releases endorphins which improves your mood and reduces stress. It can also help with concentration and walking with friends means you get more time to catch up. Walking is a low emission way to travel.

A new 7-mile Green Loop (GL) is being built to encourage cycling and walking to work, school and for leisure. Upgrades to Budds Lane and the High Street will improve routes for pedestrians and cyclists making it easier and safer to get about. The route of the GL is shown on the Whitehill and Bordon map and gives the walking times.


Want to walk and talk?

Bit of an explorer? Head to the local Bordon and Hogmoor Inclosures, Deadwater Valley or the scenic South Downs National Park where there are walking trails to challenge and excite you or Alice Holt Forest where you can follow walking trails with your family.
