Once complete Route 22 will link London with Portsmouth, then Brockenhurst via the Isle of Wight. Currently, Route 22 is open between Batt's Corner, south of Farnham and Banstead. The route takes you through the fantastic Alice Holt Forest, which has plenty of cycling and walking paths and, for the adventurous, the tree top Go Ape! which features zip wires and tarzan swings. This forest leaflet gives you the low down on all the activities available.
Route 22 then travels through Puttenham, Guildford, Dorking and Epsom Downs before arriving in Banstead. At Woodmansterne the route enters the London Borough of Croydon, connecting with Route 20. The only part of this section that is still under development is the 2 miles between Westcott and Dorking.
The route is also open between Havant and Portsmouth, and between Wootton and Newport on the Isle of Wight.
