Purple stylised horse on white arrow background with path nameWhite Horse Trail

Wiltshire

151 km / 94 miles
A route, originally created by Wiltshire Ramblers with assistance from Wiltshire Council, through Pewsey, Marlborough, Broad Town, Cherhill, Devizes, Steeple Ashton, and Bratton providing views of the eight white horses which are cut into the turf of the chalk hillsides of Wiltshire. As well as visiting many other historic and prehistoric locations, passing close to the start of the Ridgeway, use was made of part of the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Detailed route description for the White Horse Trail in both directions has been prepared by Tim Lewis, and is now available as two free downloads - see download section below. These include two alternative routes between Alton Barnes and Cherhill, one going via Avebury and Windmill Hill, and the other going via the Wansdyke. Also included are directions for the "short cut" between Alton Barnes and Pewsey, which enables the whole White Horse Trail to be divided into two (lengthy) circular routes
