Best walks under 9 miles

We reckon these walks should take you less than 4 hours…a good morning or afternoon walk.

Walk 1:
Green,-white-&-blue

Green,-white-&-blue

Jordans

A gentle 9 mile walk through the Misbourne Valley, soon to change when HS2 arrives. Get to see this beautiful valley while you have the chance. Once the train arrives it will be very different.

 Walk 2:
The Golden Parsonage

The Golden Parsonage

Briden’s Camp

A gentle 8 mile walk through the Hertfordshire countryside near Hemel Hempstead. Flat and no stiles. Return for a drink at the Crown and Sceptre pub.

 Walk 3:
Cholesbury Camp ditch

Cholesbury Camp ditch

Hastoe

We parked in the playing fields car park at Wiggington. A gentle 7 mile walk through the Buckinghamshire countryside with plenty of woods to enjoy on this walk. Keep your eyes peeled for the dinosaurs in Drayton Wood and the Iron Age fort at Cholesbury Camp.

Walk 4:
Lodge Hill looking NE towards Princes Risborough

Lodge Hill looking NE towards Princes Risborough

Bledlow

A 8.5 mile walk, starting at the Lions of Bledlow carpark and a steep climb up Chinnor Hill. Lots of stiles on this walk but some great views from Lodge Hill across to Lacey Green and along the valley towards West Wycombe. A morning or afternoon walk.

Walk 5:

Aldbury

Wiggington

Parking in Wiggington this walk crosses the A41 via a footbridge just below the village and on the The Grand Union Canal at Tring Station. Some good views across the field towards  Aldbury and this would be a good place to stop of refreshment, if needed. The climb up onto the Ashridge Estate is steep but after that the walk is reasonably flat until the final hill from Cow Roast back the Wiggington.
