Holly Hill and Greatpark Wood, Nr Snodland, Gravesend, Kent

Long or short walk with a great view.

Located along a quiet lane near Snodland Holly Hill is one of the highest points in Kent and provides great views across to Canary Wharf.  Holly Hill is a small area of woodland set on a slope with a circular footpath of around 1.5km.  The footpaths are unmade and easy to follow and push chairs should get round without many  problems.  For more energetic dogs and owners a longer walk can be added which takes in Greatpark wood and pushes the walk up to approx 5km.   The footpaths here are also unmade and easy to follow but kissing gates and a stile will make push chair access quite hard.  Parking for both woodlands is available at Holly Hill where a small free carpark awaits.
