Ride Level: Blue - Moderate
Gravel/CX MTB | GPX Route | Natural, Gravel and Single Track | 30 km/19 miles | 4 to 5 hours
A hilly blue route but nevertheless fun to ride, catch the train to Epsom and ride out to Box Hill, not to climb the famous zig-zag road but the lesser-known but equally exhilarating gravel climb. Stop at the viewpoint for glorious views of the Weald before winding your way back across the Surrey heaths to Epsom

Leave Epsom Station (last stop with the Oyster Card Zone) and join the beautifully made trails f Epsom and Ashtead Common. Pass through Ashtead Village and join Stane St, the Roman road that originally ran from London to Chichester. Stane St leads you down to the Mickleham and the base of the Box Hill climb.
Grab a coffee at the cafe at the top and head to the viewpoint for some outstanding views of the Weald below. Crossing Headley Heath and cutting through back ways on to Epsom Common the route returns to Epsom Station.
