Not currently open to riders.

This footpath runs from the junction of Trotters Bottom, Dancers Hill Road and the A1081 generally northeastwards to Dancers Lane which leads to a bridleway underbridge of the M25 motorway.

This route is recorded as a footpath, but we would like to get it upgraded to bridleway to save riders coming from the A1 bridleway bridge and Trotters Bottom from having to ride along the busy Dancers Hill Road. If you have ridden or cycled the route, please return a user evidence form so we can see if we have the right evidence to reopen this old route.
