      Highdown Hill is a 81m hill in the South Downs.It is included as part of the South Downs National Park, however it is only connected with the rest of the national park to the north and the A27 splits it from the main part of the park.

      At the summit is an Iron Age fort which overlooks Littlehampton, Angmering, Ferring and Worthing with views along the coast and out to see.

      Highdown only has a few cross country trails, however it does act as an off road link between Worthing and Angmering, and makes a good route to get to Angmering Park and into the rest of the South Downs.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: National Park
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
