“Lovely walk, fine views, with a great pub at the end”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Very good quality path with plenty of room for walkers, cyclists and horses. We walked from the South-East corner of the island along the beach, then up the trail to the Ship Inn on the Havant side of the bridge and back so we did about 20km in all. The part along the trail was lovely, with great views across the water to Portsmouth and the Spinacre Tower, and lots of butterflies and birds. There are a few benches dotted around, but it would be nicer if there were a few more, and if some could be in the shade.
It's well worth crossing the bridge at the northern end of the trail to visit the Ship Inn for refreshment before returning to the Island

“great kiddie ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

took our 8 yr old rugrat for a ride of the billy trail,,we went from the Texaco garage car park to the seafront and back,a decent ride of around 14 miles ,,and your never probably more than 50 ft above sea leval,so nice easy gradients for the rat , the trails fairly good condition with just the odd pothole here n there tho could do with a few more signs along the route,,and the views are great as well of the inlet lake,,well worth a trip,, take 2-3 hrs out for it :o)
