The Mole Gap Trail is a ~6 mile (~10 km) point-to-point established trail in Surrey, England.
The route links the two historic market towns of Dorking and Leatherhead via the outstanding countryside of the Mole Gap, just south of the London orbital motorway. Roughly following the railway line and criss-crossing the river Mole that has carved a route through the chalk of the North Downs and past the well known Box hill, you can see some of the best ancient yew and box woodlands in Europe, England’s largest vineyard and historic parkland that has inspired famous writers and artists through the centuries.

We did the route in reverse, from Dorking to Leatherhead, not that it matters (as per guidelines) or makes much difference on this short and fairly flat route in any case but just wanted to state it never the less. It was very muddy on a lot of the sections so won't be surprised if someone takes it down by a good chunk in the summer with better conditions under foot.
