At Blues Farm there are some great views, before the route continues through Shillingridge Wood, where the path was a bit up and down-y. Lots of the rest of this route is on a path through the trees on the edge of fields, which was nice as it blocked the low sun from reaching my eyes....

Luckily, after not much longer the route continues along some residential streets, before you have to pass cross some busy ways. To cross the M40 you first have to cross Cressex Road, which wasn't trivial....

A pretty strightforward route, except at Pheasant's Hill, where you have to go round three sides of a square of roads rather than stright through some houses, as indicated....

Lane End—Princes Risborough

Walk this route

An excellent Slow Way that crosses fields and woods, to then follow the scenic Hambleden Valley, and finally a stretch of the Thames Path into Henley. The route heads south down a lane; leaving it for a winding path through woods (Photo 1). The route crosses fields (Photo 2) and turns south down a quiet lane. The route south to the Thames is across fields with more great views (Photo 5)....

There’s an urban walk from High Wycombe train station: along the High Street and past the university. There’s a shorter urban walk through Cressex to reach a footpath towards the M40. On my walk, Widdenton Park Wood had sporadic noise from a nearby shooting range....

In this direction there is very little uphill, as you're coming down from the Chilterns towards the Thames. There were lots of woody areas, but also open fields and some road walking, but not in any dangerous spots....

I walked this from Princess Risborough to Lane End on a moderately warm slightly sunny day, after not much precipitation in the last few weeks. It starts in the small town of Princess Risborough, and after a while walking through the down you'll end up walking through some rather overgrown part....

Walk this route

This walk has longer flatter segments, mixed in with shorter hilly sections (which make for spectacular views of the Chilterns). If you check on the map, you'll see that significant sections are on-road, but the majority of those are quiet, and the ones that are slightly busier (in the urban areas) almost always have pavements - the notable exception being that just south of the A40. Don't try it with wheels, though - stiles, kissing gates and some very narrow sections including the part that coincides with the Chiltern Way make that impractical....

Instead of taking the Chiltern Way up the hill out of Mundaydean valley, turn left and walk half a mile along the very quiet road and turn right up the grassy hill. To reduce climbing and shorten the route, but with more mud, and more tarmac, do not climb out of the Mundaydean valley. Continue straight up the very quiet road in the MundayDean valley, which becomes a muddy footpath, rejoining route at the entrance to Shillingridge Wood2...
