It's a great way of getting some exercise by walking from the top to the bottom of Hayling Island. Also for cyclists. A wide Sandy path along a lovely stretch of coast, sometimes inland too.

Fairly well kept trail along the west side of Hayling Island, follows the route of an old rail line closed in 1963. The trail itself isn't particularly scenic, but you can see Portsea island from it. Nice for a day out. Could cycle down it,...More
