Fairly clean, places to stop sand rest with seating, quiet and a good route to relax. You can see views to Portsmouth Spinnaker Tower and there some mini beach areas as well. Note: Despite what many might state, there are NO Blackberries on this line...More

It’s a shame that this trail isn’t very well maintained. The trail runs along a very picturesque section of Hayling Island with lovely views across Langstone Harbour towards Portsea Island and Portsdown Hill but unfortunately, although a small effort has been made to improve the...More
