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.

I walked this from Potters Bar to Newgate Street. It is mostly a delightful route, except for the half a mile along Carbone Hill to the finish at Newgate Street. This is along a road without a pavement, and fairly busy. Without this segment, this route would be 5 stars. Although I walked it on a slightly drizzly morning, there was only a moderate amount of muddy sections. I have no doubt it would be significantly worse after prolonged rain.

Out of Potters Bar it climbs up a hill along a road in an urban setting, but after about a kilometre the rest of the route is through fields and woods, except for a section along Judge's Hill and through Northaw, which is on a pavement along a not so busy road. From there it climbs up against onto the aptly named Ridgeway which offers some great views. After a steep descent the route briefly goes through the delightful "Home Wood" before an annoying section along the fairly busy Carbone Hill into Newgate Street.

It follows the Hertfordshire Way and Hertfordshire Chain Walk routes for a significant amount of the route, which is nice as it's maintained and well sign posted.
