Heron Trail

13 miles (21 km)

This is a lovely circular route around the Hoo Peninsula which is bounded by the River Thames to the north and the River Medway to the south.
The route starts at Higham and follows the trail to Upnoor via the villages of Cliffe and Cooling. The ride passes near the RSPB Northward Hill Reserve where you can see 150 pairs of grey herons-hence the trail name.
To explore the peninsula on foot you can try the Hoo Peninsula Path or the Saxon Shore Way.
