Cycle track between Langbridge and Alverstone

Alverstone to Sandown

This section continues across the River Yar floodplain before entering Sandown to finish at Sandown Station.

The start of the section in Alverstone goes along the edge of the Alverstone Meadows Nature Reserve. In the far corner of the field is the bird hide, from where you can see a wide variety of bird life and which is one of the best places on the Island for spotting red squirrels.

The arch at the other end of the section marks the entrance to the Sandown Community Orchard. As well as the orchard this site is also a mixture of wetland, woodland and a pond.

The cycle path goes through a holiday park before emerging in Sandown on Perowne Way. Turn right onto the road and follow it for 600m until you see the underpass that leads to Sandown Station.
