The long-awaited Serpent Trail full-colour guide booklet is available, complete with OS mapping at 25,000 scale and an overview map, dividing the route into 16 sections. There is no route description as such, or maps list, but the map sections are clearly presented and the route is well waymarked. The guide's well-illustrated narrative focuses on the habitats, plants and wildlfe to be found en route. Public transport information is included along with useful websites, including the Sussex Wildlife Trust (link on the route page) whose work includes restoring heathlands.
