The Greensand Way is a long distance path extending for 108 miles across Surrey and Kent. The route begins at Haslemere and ends at Hamstreet and takes the walker along paths which in many places give unparalleled views across the Weald to the south. At many places there are extensive views towards the North Downs. Frequently, the route leads through quiet, almost remote areas. Much of the land is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; the stretch from Hindhead to Leith Hill has formed part of the Surrey Hills AONB since 1958.
