Help connect Tring

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Tring’s Slow Ways.

From Pitstone the route follows a residential road for a short bit, before going through a tree tunnel (photo #1) towards the canal. 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). Once leaving (photo #7) the reservoirs, there is a short section in Little Tring along a road (photo #8)....

I was glad to be wearing long sleeves and full-length trousers during this section, which appears to have become a lot more overgrown since the previous reviewer walked the route....

The walk takes footpaths out of Tring, goes around the reservoirs, and then canalside paths. Tring has everything a small town needs - and regular buses to Aylesbury/Berkhamsted/Hemel Hempstead. Pitstone is very small and I didn’t see any sign of refreshments around the meeting point area....

It wasn't a big deal though and soon I left Tring Park and I continued to follow a foot path at the edge of a field, avoiding the road on the other side. The section through Chesham wasn't very nice, with loads of cars on the road, and parked on the pavement, although the high street itself was okay. After passing a play ground, tennis fields, and an allotment, the walk went underneath the Metropolitan line tracks up the hill and through Chesham Bois Wood, where a lady asked me whether I had seen her white dog — I had not. A lovely walk, a little muddy, and the section through Chesham was my least favourite....

The descent through the woods in Tring Park was also quite steep (as mentioned by another reviewer) - I managed to get down without too much difficulty but there are a couple of other footpaths that look slightly less steep to the north of the route....

After a few locks, the route goes away from the canal, to reach a short section of the Aylesbury Arm. After another short section of canal, the route goes around the Startop's End and Tring reservoirs, with their many birds....

At SP 9174 1301 you are encouraged to follow a path to the left which then turns right around the edge of the woods. The footpath has been diverted and you can still see where it used to be. I've amended the route and reviewed the corrected version in Tripit two....

Passing Tringford Reservoir just added to the appeal of the walk. The reservoir itself was a highlight of the walk, the countryside to the north, the cormorants crowding on the islands. This had 5 star all over it, rejoining the canal was welcome and the navigation to leave and rejoin the towpath was smooth. I'd read the review of Tripit one but my OS app was unaffected by the bug which indicated staying on the towpath side of the canal. Eliminating the section on the "other side of the canal" and the walk along the lane would vastly improve what is otherwise a really lovely walk....

I walked this route from Tring to Berkhamsted and while I really enjoyed it overall, there was a notable point of discontinuity. I’ll upload a Triber two that’s nearly identical but fixes the navigation challenge of this route....

I thought it was really great countryside walking. Some wide open fields, some steep up- and downhill segments, and a good amount of walking through forest land, with a few just fantastic views of the surroundings. Wendover is also a really lovely place to rest and get something to eat....
