Description

This route is almost exactly identical to Stahat one, an incredibly lovely route, but fixes a few minor plotting inaccuracies. This makes the route easier to follow (in the few places where the route doesn't just follow the old rail line!)

I walked from Hatfield to St Albans.
This route is more accurate but largely the same as Stahat one.
I found this route a little monotonous to be honest. A flat, tarmaced, tree tunnel, no views, but this is out-weighted but its advantages.
Easy to navigate, green, flat, good quality paths, shady, suitable for all types of wheels, interesting features, benches to rest, no cars.
A route to chill out amongst the greenery, chat with a friend.
Good pubs, cafes and shops at the St Albans end.

A fantastic Slow Ways route. It follows the Albans Way almost the entire route, which is paved, wide, flat, and separated from motor vehicle traffic. It's a totally pleasant, easy to navigate, accessible, direct, and beautiful route!

Some highlights include the displays at one of the former stations and the complete forest bathing experience!

A real solid route. No complaints. Full marks!.
