Whippendell and Harrocks Woods, the Grand Union Canal and Cassiobury Park

This 5 mile ‘figure of eight’ walk takes in woods and fields in the southwest of the county in the Three Rivers and Watford Districts.

The walk also includes the Grand Union Canal towpath and the Nature Reserve in Cassiobury Park. A shorter walk is possible by doing either one, but not both, of the loops in the ‘figure of eight’.

Start and finish are at Whippendell Woods car park on Grove Mill Lane, north of Watford. The walk can also be accessed using public transportation: take the Metropolitan Underground Line to its terminus at Watford Station and then walk through Cassiobury Park.
