Easy descents with a couple of hard ground steep and steady accents.  Trails between two historic points of interest climbing to the Trundle Iron Age fort the across to the Devils Humps Bronze Age burial site. The final return follows a road and pathways through Lavant.

The Devil's Humps (also known as the Kings' Graves) are four Bronze Age barrows situated on Bow Hill on the South Downs near Stoughton, West Sussex. They are situated on a downland ridgeway crossed by an ancient trackway, above Kingley Vale.[1] The Devil's Humps are counted among the most impressive round barrows surviving on the South Downs.[2] The Devil's Humps are within the Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve.[3] The two bell barrowstogether with two pond barrows and a cross dyke are listed as Scheduled Ancient Monument 1008371,[4] while the two bowl barrows are listed as Scheduled Ancient Monument

The Trundle (Old English: Tryndel, meaning "circle")[2][1] is an Iron Age hill fort on Saint Roche's Hill about 3 miles (5 km) north of Chichester, Sussex, England. The fort was built around a Neolithic causewayed enclosure, of which very little can be seen on the ground.
