Walton Road crossing of the fibre-sand track
Walton Road crossing of the fibre-sand track
Walton Road crosses the fibre-sand track (between the parallel rails just ahead), which is used in the morning for training race horses. The back of the racecourse is visible at the top of the rise.
The post with a half yellow arrow and half red cross indicates that there is an afternoon-only ride to the left next to the fibre-sand track, while the blue arrow on the inside indicates that Walton Road is freely available to hack riders (although as it is a public road, this might be stating the obvious). Nevertheless, care is needed in the mornings, when hack riders, and other users, will need to give way to horses in training hence the barriers.

Walton Road is a partly unsealed minor public road across Epsom Downs, from the Rubbing House near the Queen's Stand, south-east to the foot of Ebbisham Lane; motor traffic is prohibited under a traffic regulation order, except on race days.
