Gerrards Cross—Chorleywood

Derick Rethans added Gercho two, a new walk from Gerrards Cross to Chorleywood

Walk this route

Great route, but with one impassable section. I've created Gercho 2 to fix it....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

From Chorleywood you'll need to climb a little to get onto the Common for a short stretch, and then after some walking along residential roads, you'll end up in some alley way public footpaths. After a while it is downhill towards the A413, which you have to follow for about 25 metres, before crossing the Gerrards Cross Golf Club (look out for golf balls!) and along a lake with swans, with a ford at the end...

Once past the M25 this route became even nicer, especially once I noticed the off-road path mentioned by the previous reviewer....

Walk this route

I think it's better in that direction, as it's all going down hill. The part with the steps is avoidable by crossing a bridge further east, and then going along Station Approach....

Chorleywood—Rickmansworth

Derick Rethans added Choric two, a new walk from Chorleywood to Rickmansworth

Walk this route

The paths are generally easy underfoot though there are a few tree roots and muddy patches to be aware of. Just outside of the wooded areas there are brilliant views over the Chess Valley....

Walk this route

The route is described in detail in the Chess Valley Walk leaflet published on the website of the Chilterns AONB (chliternsaonb.org). Descend into the Chess valley and turn right on the track at the bottom....

Walk this route

We walked this route from Amersham to Chorleywood. The Plantation Road end of the path is not marked and is easy to miss so proceed with care....

Walk this route

Also there is no public access from Chorleywood Road into the private road Troutstream Way. See photo of locked gate. A better route is using the Chess valley path....

Brian Thomson

Walk this route

A navigational point - the left turn at Market Reading Wood is the path inside the fence, not the much more obvious path outside the fence. Realised this while halfway down the hill on the wrong side!...

ALSimpson

Walk this route

The Slow Wayfarer starting from Chorleywood will encounter a golf course, several gated communities with forbidding signage, roadside pavements and a general sense of being permitted more than welcomed. The sections closer to Rickmansworth are more pleasant, but this Way is best used as a connection between the interior and exterior of the M25 orbital than as a journey in its own right. Surface generally very good, but narrow footpaths by the Loudwater estate and surprisingly steep cambers on Dog Kennel Road and heading up to Chorleywood Road may give wheels difficulty....

ALSimpson

Walk this route

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....

NeilVenn added Amecho two, a new walk from Amersham to Chorleywood

Walk this route

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....
