The North Downs Way National Trail is 1 mile from Hollingbourne station.


Hucking Estate 2½ miles

A large estate of ancient woodland, young woodland and open grassland grazed by sheep, providing valuable habitats for a wide variety of wildlife. Signposted viewpoint at the southern end of the Estate. Visit in April/May to see an outstanding show of bluebells in the woodland. Maps of the Estate trails and wildlife spotting sheets are available from the website. Admission free.
Open at all times.
A recommended route via Hollingbourne village and the North Downs Way is highlighted on the map, it is easy to follow and offers good views, only a short section is steep. A shorter but less interesting route of 1¾ miles crosses fields where the route may be harder to follow and then up a steep unsurfaced track with no views. Beware that paths on the chalky soil may be slippery after wet weather.
