Since 1990 the Cuckoo Trail has been a leisure route used by walkers, cyclists and horseriders. It is extremely popular and is mainly off-road so is suitable for people of all ages and abilities.

The picturesque trail follows the former 'Cuckoo Line' railway track and stretches from Heathfield to Eastbourne Park. It passes through Horam, Hailsham and Polegate.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 1 hour 42 minutes to cycle the distance and along the way 723 calories will be burnt.
