We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Pleasant walk that initially takes in some of Chorleywood Common and continues onto two long, quiet, interesting residential roads (with pavements) up to Rickmansworth Station. For me, more greenery would have tipped it into 4 stars but regardless, it's a nice route and better than driving!

The walk starts with a small but steep set of stairs that can be avoided if needed. Chorleywood is pretty hilly but the majority of the walk is fairly flat and where there are hills, they are generally short and gradual. At one point, you pass under the M25 and have to walk on a busy, but wide, road with plenty.

I walked this route from Rickmansworth. From the start, I appreciated how the route used the pedestrian bridges to cross two busy roads, and then went down quiet leafy streets. It was very easy to navigate and walk, although I would find the pavements tiring if coming the other way! Once past the M25 this route became even nicer, especially once I noticed the off-road path mentioned by the previous reviewer. The one downside of the path was the regular steps up and down to driveways which sloped across the path. Going around the edge of Chorleywood Common was pleasant and once again easy to navigate. The footpath down Betjeman Gardens was clearly signposted and having the gap in the gate made it less imposing. Overall a fairly pleasant and direct route.

I walked this from Rickmansworth to Chorleywood. I previously walked this route in the other direction as part of my Tube Walking project ( I think it's better in that direction, as it's all going down hill.

In this instance, it starts of going through some quiet residential streets and slowly creeps upwards. The few hundred metres crossing under the M25 were a little annoying as there is no pavement, but there is soon after that a sneakly hidden path (with steps up and down a few times) to the north side of Berry Lane. From there there is climb past the allotments and then onto Chorleywood Common. The descent to the station is through a road with a gate, but it has a person wide piece missing in the middle. A flight of steps gets you to the entrance. The part with the steps is avoidable by crossing a bridge further east, and then going along Station Approach. But that's less nice to walk.
