Description

This is a replacement for LOUEPP 2 where the route file has a problem and won't load onto mapping apps.

This route is through Epping Forest on paths that are usually quite firm but can be muddy in places. You are advised to take adequate fluid and food etc with you as there are no supplies on most of the route. This route is enjoyable all year round, but is unlit during hours of darkness.

This route is surprisingly hilly, for a part of the world often thought by outsiders to be flat.

The beech forest looks very different at times of the year. A GPS locator is useful as there are many paths together with a map. People walking from Epping to Loughton should watch carefully for the right turn path towards off the main Forest Road track towards Furze Ground between Jack's Hill and Golding's Hill

It is possible to leave the route and join the public bus service at Golding's Hill should you need to do so, approximately hourly - check timetable on line

Surveys

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.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.
