Tri Lakes Country Park

5 miles (8 km)

Also known as the Yately Lakes this lovely country park near Sandhurst has some nice waterside trails to try. The park has numerous pretty lakes, an animal park, an indoor play area and an excellent lakeside cafe. Sandhurst railway station is right next to the park so you can easily come by train. The route also visits the adjacent Horseshoe Lake and the Moor Green Lakes Nature Reserve where there are excellent bird watching opportunities.
The Three Castles Path, the Blackwater Valley Footpath and the Wokingham Way all run past the park so you could pick up any of these trails to continue your walk. Yately Common Country Park is also nearby.

The Three Castles Path passes the park so you could pick this up to extend your walk. If you follow the waymarked trail north east it will take you into the expansive Swinley Forest. Here you'll find miles of walking trails and three good mountain bike trails to try.
Just a mile to the north there's the National Trust's Finchampstead Ridges. There's some lovely heathland and woodland here with fine views from the high points. The lakeside trails in California Country Park are also located in this area.
The Crowthorne Walk starts from the nearby village and visits the park. There's a train station here so you could come by public transport and follow footpaths south to the reserve.
