This walk is a linear route linking stations on the Abbey railway line between Watford and St Albans, following the River Ver Trail.

This 4.1 mile circular walk starts and ends at the rail station in Berkhamsted in the west of the county HP4 2AJ . Nearly all of the walk is within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the first half of the route follows part of the Hertfordshire Way, the 195 mile long-distance path around the whole of Hertfordshire.
