Croxley Green Boundary Walk
This waymarked circular walk in Rickmansworth explores the area around the village of Croxley Green.
The walk starts on the village green and heads north east towards Whippendell Woods. You could take a small detour from the route to explore the woods. Here you'll find lots of wildlife and a noteworthy avenue of lime trees dating back to 1672.
The trail then passes Dell Wood before turning south east to follow a country lane down to the canal. On the opposite side of the water there's the popular Cassiobury Park to explore in Watford. This route heads south along the canal to Long Valley Wood where you cross the River Gade to enter Common Moor. Here you pick up a section of the Ebury Way and follow it west to Croxleyhall Farm. Continue north west and you will pass along the River Chess on the eastern side of Rickmansworth. The final section heads through Copthorne Wood before returning you to the village.
