A generally flat, easy walk starting from Brookwood railway station. The trail follows the towpath of the Basingstoke canal passing locks and canal boats. At St. John's Lye in Woking, the route leaves the canal and heads south across the railway, crossing Hook Heath then rejoining the towpath to return to Brookwood station.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 1 hour 42 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 454 calories will be burnt.
