Benches are dotted around giving you a chance to pause and enjoy the countryside and distant views to Cambridge to the north and a wide sweep of land to the south, covering five counties.
You can picnic on the benches with your dog in both Fairfield and Bagfield, or in the Picnic Field if you are visiting without one.
An easy route to the top of Little Trees Hill, is indicated on the map, suitable for wheelchairs.
Cycling is not allowed on Magog Down but cycle racks are available near the car park for those arriving by cycle.

As well as the three disabled parking spaces, there is step-free access to North Down with seats close to both of the gates from the car park. There are mown paths so that visitors can walk easily to the top of Little Trees Hill, or use a wheelchair or mobility scooter. There are a number of seats spread across the top of Little Trees Hill providing views across North Down and to Cambridge beyond.
Dogs are welcome but you must keep them on leads at all times except where indicated on off-lead paths. Clear signs are given, please follow them or look on the map on the Noticeboard. As recommended in the Countryside Code, dogs must be under control at all times. At times, sheep are grazed in the paddocks and extra care must be taken to control dogs. Dog bins are provided across the site.
In addition to the many paths within the site, there are two dog play areas where dogs can be exercised off lead, if you are comfortable about retaining control of your dog. Fairfield and Bagfield, both near the car park, are indicated on the map displayed on the noticeboard and here.
