Great place to walk, as far as you wish, plenty of places to leave the trail. Sharing the walk with other walkers, cyclists and horses, everyone says hello, it’s very friendly.

An easy trail for all levels and ages. Some sections involve main roads and not the best signage about. Had to use google maps for directions at times. Good few pubs near by. Worth doing.

A very nice and easy place to walk, good hard surface to walk along, was an old railway line, some pleasant scenes along the way. Lots of cyclists but everyone was polite. A nice walk.

7 miles of hard surface for walkers/cyclists and horses. From Thame, via Towersey to (almost) Princes Risborough. One of the great SUSTRANS charity installations complete with some unique sculptures. We are lucky to have it available for no cost to users

Old railway line, tarmac until well out into countryside and the well packed gravel path which gets narrower as you get out to Princes Risborough. Views towards Chilterns at times, but not particularly interesting walk.

This is a well surfaced long path, suitable for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and very popular with local people.

Parking depends on the time and day you go, and at what point you intend to join the trail. At the end nearest the Lord Bill's Upper School in Thame, you could try parking in the school's top car park near the main road on a... More
