Views from the North Downs Way - Heart of Kent Walking Festival

About

Although quite a difficult walk, it will take in some amazing views of the Kentish countryside. You will get a sense of achievement by climbing the escarpment to reach these vistas. Look out for various raptors such as buzzards and maybe even red kite that may be flying over the Downs. A short detour off the North Downs Way will include the view from the Woodland Trust Hucking Estate, a good spot for a packed lunch.
