This is a beautiful walk - mainly on the Ouse Valley way. I tend to agree with the comments about the Huntingdon end of the route though the street section wasn't too bad. The path had been maintained when I walked.

Pleasant walk mainly along the Ouse Way. Avoid the walk along the Buckden Road out of Huntingdon and follow the great Ouse Valley Way out of Huntingdon and also past Little Paxton. I stopped at the Paxton Pits reserve cafe for a lovely cup of tea and refill my water bottle!
Lots of kissing gates so not suitable for wheels.

Lovely walk along the Ouse but would be better to follow the Ouse Valley Way along the entire route rather than following the road at the Huntingdon end - the road is busy and has to be crossed twice whereas the OVW stays on paths and enters Huntingdon via Mill Common straight to the bus station. If going to the Visitor Centre at Paxton Pits take the path in the Nature Reserve to the OVW rather than going through Little Paxton. The OVW is well waymarked .
