Like TriPit Three, but with a little shortcut where it meets Startop's End reservoir, and bypassing an impassible path

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.

12 Nov 2023 Autumn

I walked this from Pitstone to Tring, on a slightly cloudy and chilly afternoon. It had rained a lot in the past week.

From Pitstone the route follows a residential road for a short bit, before going through a tree tunnel (photo #1) towards the canal. The path becomes wider and has woods on each side (photo #2).

The towpath was lovely, with easy going paths. It was a little muddy in some places, but nothing too bad. The colours of the trees, and the nearly mirrored surface made for some nice shots (photo #3, #4).

After crossing over the Aylesbury Arm, the route then follows the main arm of the GUC for a short section, before continuing along the Tring reservoirs (photo #5, #6). All very pleasant as well. Crossing Tringford Road wasn't too hard.

Once leaving (photo #7) the reservoirs, there is a short section in Little Tring along a road (photo #8). It wasn't too bad though, but there was a short section of pavement missing. It then continues along the Wendover Arm of the GUC for a short while (photo #9). TriPit Three follows this all the way along, but this one leaves the canal about halfway, as the rest around and towards Icknield Way was impassible. The route across the fields (photo #10) that makes up this walk, was fine. Some good views (photo #11), but a little muddy.

Crossing Icknield Way was easy with a light, and the last section of the route goes along a brook with a well maintained public footpath (photo #12) all the way into Tring and the finish at the church (photo #13).
