    Route Description for Cissbury Walk

    The Cissbury Walk takes you along the rolling countryside and boasts stunning views after a heart-pumping climb up to the top of Cissbury Ring. Beginning at the stone track at the fenced fields, follow the path through multiple fields and into a valley known as Stump Bottom. After walking for 1.9 km, you will pass Lychpole Dewpond and pass a green metal barn. Continuing on about 70 m, you will pass through a wooden gate, which is the entrance to the Cissbury Ring. Continue to follow the path through a kissing gate, and take a minute to realize how high you have climbed. Once you reach the top, there are stunning views of Brighton, Devil’s Dyke, and Storrington. Continue to follow the path and navigate a kissing gate followed by another gate, and you will reach the car park where you began.
