The long distance path heads from Grove Ferry Hill towards the road and onwards to Chislet and Boyden Gate.

It is also used by the Wantsum Walk (another long distance path).

Saxon Shore Way
The Saxon Shore Way starts at Gravesend, Kent and traces the coast as it was in the Roman times as far as Hastings in East Sussex, 163 miles (262 km) in total. The Saxon Shore Way was originally opened in 1980, but has since been re-established, and in parts re-routed and extended. It follows the coastline of the South East as it was about 1500 years ago, long before the North Kent Marshes or the Romney Marsh came into existence. The Way takes its name, The Saxon Shore, from a line of fortifications built along the coastline as it was in the 3rd Century AD.
The Wantsum Walk
A linear coastal walk in North Kent, which runs for 8 miles (12.8km) from Herne Bay to Birchington. The route is divided between clifftops and sea wall, leading to paths within Reculver Country Park. Inland are panoramic views of the low-lying marshes and dykes. There are strong connections with the former Wantsum Channel, which separated the Isle of Thanet from the mainland until Medieval times
