The route doesn’t finish in the correct place, if you are trying to get to the main shopping Centre. The route could also use side roads which a quieter, but this may be longer. Generally, the route is good!...
I would also plan to complete this route during daylight as a large section of the walk is unlit. The route has nice views and takes you away from the busy streets of the places it connects....
While there are minor inclines throughout the route, the steepest point is the pedestrian crossing over the A406 close to Brent Cross station. - The entrance to Brent Cross station the route suggests is closed after 8 pm and all day on Sunday, therefore I had to take a slightly longer route to the main entrance....
Excellent route, plenty of green space, and the residential areas are quiet and pleasant. I walked on a Monday lunchtime and Golders Green road (the only potentially noisy one) was pretty quiet. I did go a bit astray on Hampstead Heath (n.b. Follow the cycle route) but not by much, and soon sorted myself out....

(I walked it from Finchley Central to Brent Cross so will describe it that direction). Overall, it's a good and safe route, with half of it quite lovely and the other half perfectly adequate....
David Sanderson added Edgbre two, a new walk from Edgware to Brent CrossWalk this route
I walked this route from Hampstead Heath to Brent Cross. Entering Golders Green on a Saturday morning was an interesting time to be there....
1 Crossing Silkstream Park, the route takes you away from the main path and takes you around the outskirts of the park, eventually delivering you to a set of steps up to a section of the road away from the pedestrian crossing. Had it followed the main route it would have passed the cafe and then delivered you by ramp to the pedestrian crossing....
A route that makes the most of the green spaces between Edgware and Brent Cross. I started from Brent Cross and was surprised to start the route through the underground station....
A really pleasant stroll, across some lovely green open spaces, the best being Freyent Park, and around Welsh Harp Reservoir. Definitely not appropriate for road bikes, wheelchairs or pushchairs (lots of grass, and would be very muddy in winter/early spring or after rain. The route as laid out here works well!...
I had some issues near Stephen's House and Gardens as the normal entrance was closed (for repairs), but one further to the East worked as well....
Between Kilburn and Finchley Road it's fine, but Hendon Way was dreadful. Brekil 2 is a much nicer alternative....
A good urban walk with plenty of refreshments and pubs. Avoiding Hendon Way is a must, but can't be totally avoided. There are also some hills involved, with some safe, but annoying, crossings of busyish roads....
At Childs Hill the route turns off the Finchley Road and drops downhill to Childs Hill park. There's a short section through Basing Hill Park, and an even shorter one on the Hendon Way before turning off into residential streets all the way to Brent Cross....
Jane Taylor added Brekil two, a new walk from Brent Cross to KilburnWalk this route
I always like walking on the Heath and this indeed took me along some paths I hadn't walked yet. There was very little walking along main roads....
These obstacles aside, the rest of the walk is very pleasant, and links up the different neighbourhoods and stations at this end of the Northern Line in a smart and purposeful way....
This is Kinbre One, but with the navigation in Fryent Country Park and near Welsh Harp fixed, as there were several places that were impassible....
Derick Rethans added Kinbre two, a new walk from Kingsbury to Brent CrossWalk this route
When I walked it from Brent Cross on a Sunday morning, Hendon Way was thankfully a bit quiet, but it’s still a big, loud, and nasty road to walk along. The second half through West Hampstead, in contrast, is extremely pleasant and lovely urban adventuring....
I walked the route from Brent Cross to Hampstead Heath and the route definitely has two halves. The second half is a lovely adventure through Hampstead Heath, and I found it just really fantastic to explore a much larger part of the park than I’d ever been before....
I walked this route from Wembley to Brent Cross. - the side entrance to the Brent cross station that this route has you take wasn’t open when I walked the route on a Sunday, but you can get to the station from Highfield Avenue no problem...

I walked from Kilburn to Brent Cross. The first 3km is through well-to-do suburbia with pleasant roads and highstreets with a variety of shops and galleries....

I walked from Hampstead to Brent Cross, across the Heath , along quiet residential roads before a short section along busy roads....

Then there's the Welsh Harp Reservoir Nature reserve with plenty of wild life also, take binoculars if you have them, take a picnic. I took the quiet route as mapped behind the stadium, but you can also go the other way past shops and cafes....

The second 'park' follows the Capital Ring (signposted) for a way along beside busy roads then along the Dollis Valley Greenwalk and through Brent Park to a busy crossing close to Brent Cross Tube....
About 60% road walking but there are two wonderful places that make you feel you're in a rural setting - The Welsh Harp Reservoir and Fryent Country Park....

To/from Edgware and Brent Cross Tube stations, Via Burnt Oak, Colindale, and (close to) Hendon tube stations....
jbax surveyed Breham oneWalk this route
There were no issues with the trail as it appears on the site, but there are some accessibility challenges including a section between the main Heath and the extension with a relatively steep unpaved dirt hill and some steps....
