Meon Valley Trail

The Meon Valley Trail stretches for 10 miles from Knowle to West Meon, along a disused railway line. It is open to walkers, cyclists and equestrians.

Between 2014 and 2015 Hampshire County Council, in partnership with the South Downs National Park Authority, carried out improvement works to the Trail.

Access for people using the Trail has been improved by the removal of mud and debris and the restoration of the track’s surface. Better access points onto the Trail have been created. Some trees have been removed or coppiced to improve public safety, to open up views and to create a diverse habitat more in keeping with the South Downs. The legal rights for people to use the Trail will be formalised to protect future public access.
