Navigation easy and most paths clear to follow but autumn leaves can make less obvious....

The route starts at Tring and heads towards Tring park, where from there on the section consists of half going up the hill, and then half going down into Wendover. It's not a small hill, but it's all through woods on the way up....

Out of Wendover this is a minute re-routing necessary due to HS2 (instead of crossing the railway on a bridge), to right out of the station and then right again....

The walk starts with going through the village for a little while, and after a little verge walking, there is a climb going up a steep hill with some great view into Wendover Woods....

We walked this route from Wendover to Princes Risborough on a beautiful clear, sunny, February afternoon. The route is easy to follow, and as others have noted there are plenty of climbs and muddy sections, but the views from the edge of the Chiltern escarpment make it well worthwhile....

A good walk with no difficulties but not suitable for wheelchair or child buggies due to stiles....

An easy route but not suitable for physically disabled due to styles and narrow bridge. Much of route is along canal tow paths No significant ascents or descents...

Note I also posted this same review under Wentri one accidentally - I can't vouch for that route, but Wentri two is lovely....

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....

We took this route from Prestwood to Wendover and thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Other than a short section on roads when leaving Prestwood, the walk was through woodlands and across fields, with good views of the Chiltern countryside. There was a short diversion from the indicated path as we approached Wendover because of HS2 preparation works, but this was clearly marked and easy to follow....

I walked this route from Prestwood. Otherwise, this route was easy to navigate, straightforward, nice and varied between farmland, open country, and wooded space....

There is one small section that doesn’t appear to be a public footpath - as it takes you through an office building car park - but otherwise a good route. Technical in places due to uneven surfaces and a very narrow bridge. Selection of some access issues attached!...

Absolutely beautiful walk, a lot of which follows the Ridgeway National Walking Route, passing over Coombe Hill - Stunning views! Wonderful mix of woodland and open country walking. A few big climbs, but worth the views!...

Walk this route

It was very clear and well-waymarked, so very easy to navigate, including a small part of the Ridgeway and some of the Chiltern Link. There was one particularly narrow, muddy path which would be hard to avoid without a significant detour and more roads, and some of the pavement walking towards the end dragged. However, there was a lot to enjoy including good views, a variety of landscapes (some wood, some farm, some village etc) and, for the most part, easy paths....

Walk this route

It's reasonable but there is quite a lot of road-walking in Amersham, through Hyde Heath, and along Great Hundridge Lane. Only the section on the approach to Hyde Heath is actually unpleasant and potentially dangerous - there is no pavement so you are forced to either walk on the road or on a narrow grass verge....
