Shanklin to Wroxall

This section is on roads for a short distance in Shanklin, but as soon as you leave Landguard Road into the Lower Hyde Holiday Park it is very quiet with a lovely peaceful stretch along the old railway line to Wroxall, passing under several old railway bridges.

There is a steady climb over the entire railway line route, but it really doesn’t feel like it because it is so gradual.
