Hertfordshire Border Walk

Herefordshire

275 km / 171 miles
The Hertfordshire Border Walk is a county boundary path that has been developed as a project of the Association of British Counties, and the development page is hosted on WildingUK.

The route follows closely around Hertfordshire's county border as far as is practical, and in several places actually runs on the boundary itself, trespassing over the border but briefly on occasion. The route takes in a variety of scenery, including the suburban landscape in the south of the county where it meets Middlesex, "Metro-Land", canal towpaths, riverbanks, farms, woods and the open heaths in the north of the county.

The route allows for excursions from the path to explore places of interest, and innumerable villages and their country pubs.

UPDATE May 2022: A short section of this route between TQ 0243 9060 and TQ 0204 9162 to the east of the M25 near Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire is reported closed until January 2025 due to construction of HS2.
