Length: 9.5km (6m)
Toughness: 1 / 10
Transport: Take the 9:58 from London Victoria (usually Charing Cross, but engineering works diverted this train) to Hayes, arriving 10:48. The more south-easterly residing walkers can join the train at Lewisham (10:19). For the more southerly residing walkers there is a bus cross connection from East Croydon Bus Station with bus No 119. 10:04 might be an approprate departure time. Hayes is in Zone 5, so Oyster Card can be used.
This is a lovely walk through the woodlands of Hayes, Keston and West Wickham Commons, passing the three Keston Lakes and iron age fortifications. Charles Darwin conducted some of his studies in these Commons.
