“Gentle cycling in safety”
Review of The Phoenix Trail

The Phoenix Trail
Ranked #1 of 14 things to do in Thame
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 December 2017

Ideal for cyclists that want a safe easy route for a little exercise. Great for kids cycling as no traffic. Enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. About 7 miles a flat pathway - great for jogging but not as scenic as Pulpit Hill, Beacon and Combe Hill for walking/dog walking.

We are so lucky to have this but please, dog owners (and I am one myself), do not let your dogs off the lead and certainly stop letting them pooh everywhere and put your pooh bags in a bin! Read the do's and don'ts at the entrance and we can all use it happily. Kids can learn to cycle here, we can keep fit and not be worried about cars but to dodge dogs and their pooh is not nice for anyone!

If you’re after a walk off roads with safe crossings for family, or dog walking or a run this is perfect. A little overgrown now and a shame about people loitering which spoils it for everyone but it’s a flat pathed 7.5mile track from Thame to Risborough so good enough for any age and any ability. Something I’m thankful for having on my doorstep

Great cycle trail for the young and old with lots of sculptures along the way that make this trail fun. During the summer the presence of brambles and stinging nettals protruding into the path way can make it more risky for younger cyclists that are still getting use to their balance.

A very peaceful walk which i began a mile from Thame.A thoroughly enjoyable wander which cut through some picturesque countryside.I have walked many old disused lines and have never seen a busier one yet...this seems to be a firm favourite for cyclists,i walked past dozens.A fairly flat smooth walk suitable for all including wheelchair users.The trail is about 7 miles and goes from Thame and finishes at Princes Risborough.I walked about 3 miles before the heavens opened.....an enjoyable walk.
