The walk has just a few steady climbs and descents. There are no stiles but many kissing gates and a few steps. The paths are a mixture of stone, tarmac and grass, some of which will be muddy after wet weather. The walk passes through a large horse paddock so take care with dogs at this point.

Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

The walk starts from Tring railway station, which is on the Milton Keynes and Watford Junction line. If you are coming by car there is a pay and display car park for more than 500 cars alongside the station. Approximate post code HP23 5QR.
