The Phoenix Trail has something to suit everyone, whether it's a quick and traffic-free cycle ride between Princes Risborough and Thame, a tranquil path to amble along with your dog on a summer's evening, somewhere safe to teach your child to ride their first bicycle, or a connecting route for horses to get on and off the Ridgeway at Bledlow.

Sit on the sculptures to admire the magnificent views of the nearby Chiltern Hills and observe Red Kites, the impressive birds of prey that thrive in the area. Whatever the weather or season, the trail gives you the chance to get out into the fresh air all year round.

The trail is flat and surfaced and ideal for wheelchairs and pushchairs and there is seating every 500 metres. The first 2.5 miles out of Thame are surfaced with tarmac and the remainder with compacted limestone dust. Wheelchairs may experience difficulty with the access ramps at Towersey Halt and the B4009.
