As pointed out by Strider in his reviews, the A41 Watford Bypass road crossing isn't drawn accurately. This creates an unnecessarily long unpleasant stretch along a dual carriageway (it was raining when I went which made it even horrider). I've remade the route as Boredg Two, with the road crossing corrected, and recommend that.
Other than that this is a good direct route into/out of London taking advantage of parkland and surprisingly rural green belt lanes.

Addition to previous review.
You cannot cross the A41 Watford by-pass at the place shown on the map.
On reaching the A41 you will need to turn right out of Edgwarebury Park to the crossing bridge, then double back - this adds about 400m to the journey.
From Edgware turn left at the A41 to the crossing and double back.

The beginning and end of this route is suburban pavements, a little boring but easily accessible in all weathers.
The middle is through parks, open fields and woods and a mix of tarmac and earth. There are some kissing gates and stiles, there is a narrow bridge and steps in the wood. The ground can be very muddy in winter. From Edgware to Elstree is uphill about 70m (75-145m), steep in places.
This is a lovely breath of fresh air in open space right on the edge of town.
You cannot cross the A41 where shown. Look left if walking North (right if walking South) there is a crossing bridge over the road.
