This walk goes through highly attractive and enjoyable woodland, parkland and waterways not far from the centre of Watford. At both start and finish there are pleasant stretches along the banks of the River Gade and the Grand Union Canal, with some delightful areas of woodland in between.
Our longer Explorer WALX are open to all, exploring beautiful areas in and around London. Routes are planned with breaks and the opportunity for refreshments but this isn't just a ramble; we'll encourage the good posture and motivation to push yourself as we do in all our WALX.
If you'd like to benefit from using Nordic walking poles, we advise you attend a Learn to Nordic WALX workshop. Walkers without poles or with trekking poles are very welcome.
