Route Outline

This circular walk in Hertfordshire starts and finishes at the car park adjacent to the railway station in the Hertfordshire town of Tring. The location makes this a perfect opportunity for both commuters out of London and also for anyone else who wishes to leave the car at home, to explore some of the Chiltern Hills. The outward section follows the Ridgeway, which is one of the National Trails and might just be Britain's oldest path, as it leads you over one of the most spectacular parts of the Chilterns. On the way back, you will retrace your steps to have another look at some of the fabulous scenery seen earlier and then continues through ancient woodlands to visit the Bridgewater Monument and Pitstone Common. Most of the walk is set within The Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the Ashridge Estate, a National Trust property. As befits a national trail, the Ridgeway is extremely well signposted and the symbol to look out for is an acorn.
