Icknield Way Trail

'The Icknield Way has been a recognised regional route for walkers since 1992. In 2004 it was further developed into a multi-use route so that most of the route is also available for horse riders and off-road cyclists providing a complete walking and riding link between the two National Trails ... Wherever possible the Icknield Way Trail follows the walkers route, the Icknield Way Path, but diverges at several locations to ensure the Icknield Way Trail follows bridleways, byways and where necessary roads; whereas walkers can pass over footpaths and therefore can access more direct and/or scenic routes.'
