Help connect Waltham Cross

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 Waltham Cross’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

This walk is a functional route between Enfield Town and Waltham Cross. On a bright day, I would rather take Enfiwalt Two as it is a lot more 'scenic' following the New River and parkland. However, this route gets the job done and goes through more built-up areas so it is safer to do alone....

I walked in a roundabout way from Cheshunt and Waltham Cross to Potters bar. POTCHE starts at the roundabout (shops cafes) heads East then south along suburban streets to a cycle path which takes you to gates outside Cedars Park. Together the above makes a wheelchair friendly route from Cheshunt to Waltham Cross. POTWAL goes under the tunnel along a track to the road which takes you to another track further on past a festival field and small holdings along Chain Walk past open fields until you meet the Hertfordshire Way and the beginning of Hemps Hill. Hemps Hill takes you through wooded tracks up to Northaw, a picturesque village (there’s a tap just inside the church gate but also a pub)....
