This trail is one of a pair of walks produced by Chilterns AONB. It explores the Chiltern Hills and ancient woods to the east of Wendover.
Just a 45 minute train ride from London Marylebone and a few minutes walk from Wendover station you can enjoy the fresh air and fantastic views of the Chilterns countryside. The two walks take you to the top of the Chiltern Hills, through ancient beech woods, carpets of bluebells and wild flowers. There are amazing views of the Vale of Aylesbury and Chequers, the Prime Minister's country home. You might also see rare birds such as Red Kites and Firecrests and the tiny Muntjac Deer.
Allow 3.5 to 4 hours for the trail. There are no stiles or kissing gates. About a mile of the section from Wendover to The Hale is considerably uphill. There is an All Ability Trail suitable for wheelchairs near Wendover Woods main car park.
Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 2 hours 26 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 650 calories will be burnt.
