Hertfordshire Chain Walk
Distance (miles)86
Overview

'The Hertfordshire Chain Walk is an 86-mile walk that crosses the county of Hertfordshire from south to north, starting on the northern edge of London and finishing in Cambridgeshire. Unlike the other long distance paths that I've walked, which either follow a straightforward linear route from A to B or else form a large "circle", this path consists of 15 circular walks of between 4 and 9 miles in length that are linked together to form a "chain" – hence the name Chain Walk. In fact there is a quarter mile gap between Walk 7 and Walk 8, so the Hertfordshire Chain Walk is also unusual in that it is a long distance footpath with a hole in the middle!'

Marked and Measured Routes
Overview

'Marked and Measured Routes are pre-plotted routes of 1k, 2.5k or 5k which can be walked, run or cycled at your own pace - all for free ... Each Map contains the route location, distance and a difficulty rating of 1 - 4 (1 = easy and flat, 4 = difficult and hilly). The majority of the routes cross footpaths and grassed areas and therefore may be muddy and / or uneven, making them unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.'

London Borough of Barnet

Mill Hill Footpath Walks
Overview

'We venture to assert that Barnet is unique among London boroughs in the amount of open space which still exists in an area so close to the capital. Admittedly, an enormous amount of land has been given over to the necessary provision of homes for a growing population. But thanks to the far-sighted actions of the then Hendon Urban District Council in the twenties and thirties in buying up the estates of former great landowners (Moat Mount Open Space, Scratchwood, Arrandene Open Space to name a few) and the zoning of Totteridge Valley and its edges as Green Belt land, we still have a substantial amount of "countryside" on our doorstep.'
