Milton Keynes

40 km / 25 miles
A horse-shoe shaped waymarked route in Milton Keynes, starting in one of our semi-ancient woodlands, Howe Park Wood. The route guides you through the Tattenhoe Valley, to Furzton Lake and along the Loughton Valley and on to Lodge Lake. You'll be introduced to the famous concrete cows as you make your way up through the North Loughton Valley and to the edge of Linford Lakes Nature Reserve. Turning south you'll pass through Linford Manor and join the Grand Union Canal to Willen Lake and onto Campbell Park where you will discover many pieces of artwork and one of the best viewing points in Milton Keynes. The final part of the route follows the River Ouzel, through Ouzel Valley Park concluding at Caldecotte Lake.

The Parks Trust that developed the route is an independent charity that cares for over 5,000 acres of parkland and green space in Milton Keynes.
