Stretching for 100 miles, from Winchester to Eastbourne, the South Downs Way is the only National Trail entirely within a National Park.
Providing spectacular views from its high ridges across a changing patchwork of fields, woods, rolling hills, wide river valleys and its Heritage Coast, the South Downs Way can be completed on foot, horseback or by bike. Over half a million people visit the trail every year.
While the 160km National Trail receives some public funding, this does not cover the significant resurfacing works that are periodically required to keep the route accessible and mud free!
The South Downs Trust works with the National Trail to provide this vital funding.
