It's a lovely walk, but I docked one star due to the street walking in Prestwood, which was a little too long. I walked this on a semi-sunny Friday afternoon without any precipitation in the last week, from Prestwood to Amersham. Besides a few minor hills at the start, this walk was mostly down hill through woods with sometimes muddy paths, a little more street walking in Little Kingshill and then most of the last stretch was through farmland into Old Amersham....

There is a tiny stretch of road walking, followed by a neat straight line walk up a hill through fields with a windmill over the trees. At some point just after leaving Amersham there is a switch back in the route to go up the hill, through the middle of a field, and then after having walked a little at the top, it directs you back down off the hill to the path that you were just one....

It's also very varied with a nice mix of town, woodland and farmland over the short 5-6 miles. I'm not entirely sure why the route bothers going down Magpie lane and then around to Ongar farm after Bowers farm as there's a path straight through....

Navigation was easy, and refreshments en route are available at The Crown or Red Lion in Little Missenden, or nearer the end at The Full Moon in Little Kingshill. The paths are generally in good condition, though sections in Atkins' Wood (where it is a bridleway) frequently get very muddy. Overall, it was a very enjoyable walk....

Starting and ending with walks through pleasant residential areas to railway stations on the Chiltern Railways line between London Marylebone and Aylesbury (and the Metropolitan line into central London), this route takes you through countryside and woodland. The woodland paths can be well-worn with exposed tree routes in places and will be muddy when wet but are not technically challenging and there are no long climbs....

It was very clear and well-waymarked, so very easy to navigate, including a small part of the Ridgeway and some of the Chiltern Link. There was one particularly narrow, muddy path which would be hard to avoid without a significant detour and more roads, and some of the pavement walking towards the end dragged. However, there was a lot to enjoy including good views, a variety of landscapes (some wood, some farm, some village etc) and, for the most part, easy paths....

There are many ways you could choose to get between Amersham Station and the edge of town where the main trail begins (or ends!) but the drawn route is nice enough (although don't bother crossing the railway - it adds nothing of interest). At either end you have a decent choice of shops and eateries for refreshments....

It's reasonable but there is quite a lot of road-walking in Amersham, through Hyde Heath, and along Great Hundridge Lane. Only the section on the approach to Hyde Heath is actually unpleasant and potentially dangerous - there is no pavement so you are forced to either walk on the road or on a narrow grass verge....
