This trail follows the Thames Path for a little over half the walk, taking a recommended short detour of a couple of hundred yards to stop off for refreshment at the famous Trout Inn at Godstow, overlooking the river. The return route takes you across pretty meadows and skirts Wytham Great Wood to rejoin the Thames Path, bringing you back across Swinford Toll Bridge or alternatively the lock at Eynsham.
