This is the best of the routes between Iver and Uxbridge (and the direction I walked it) The other review describes this well. I would add that you can question whether you are allowed to follow the track out of Iver, due to the number of private property and cctv signs along the track, But you can. For most of the route you can easily forget you are on the edge of suburbs.

I walked from Uxbridge to Iver.
This route quickly takes you out of the town center through a park, to a riverside path behind a pub and houses. a short bit through an industrial park to a very narrow (35cm) barrier. Then along the Colne Valley Path, over a bridge with Coal Post. A short stretch of busy road, then along a farm track where you will see the bridge over the M25. Immediately right after the bridge leads to an Idyllic setting past some houses. You then leave the CV path and go along Beeches way into Iver and the Co-op node.
Mostly good paths in beautiful surroundings punctuated by short bits of road. A good walk.
