National Trails and Long Distance Paths crisscross the Chilterns in this area. This Circular Walk makes use of short stretches of at least four such to provide a beautiful and varied walk through Chiltern woodland, on Chiltern chalk downs with wide vistas from the scarp edge of the hills, along a stretch of the historic Grand Union Canal, and through one of the prettiest villages in Hertfordshire. All the walk is in the AONB and much of it on NT land - the Ashridge estate and Pitstone Hill - and there are several opportunities for refreshment. Since it can be started from Tring station it could be enjoyed without the need for a car.
