Tring Circular Walk

7 miles (11.8 km)

This circular walk explores some of the highlights surrounding the Hertfordshire town of Tring. The 7.5 mile route visits Tring Park the Tring Reservoirs and the Grand Union Canal with fine scenery throughout.
The walk starts in the town centre and follows a footpath south into Tring Park. In the park you will find expansive areas of grassland and pretty bluebell woods ideal for a peaceful afternoon stroll. There's lots of wildflowers and butterflies in the summer months with great views from the park's high points. In the park you pick up The Ridgeway and follow it east past Langton Wood and Wiggington to the canal. You pick up the towpath and head north to Bulbourne where you can visit the Tring Reservoirs. The four reservoirs include Startops End, Marsworth, Tringford and Wilstone. They are fantastic for birdwatching with visitors including grebes, bitterns, peregrine falcon, pied flycatcher and ringed plovers.
The canal passes the southern end of the reservoirs toward Drayton Beauchamp. Just before you reach the village you can pick up a footpath heading past Miswell Farm to take you back into Tring.
To continue your walking in the area head west to pick up our Wendover Circular Walk. The route explores the expansive Wendover Woods and includes a waterside stroll along the Wendover Canal Arm.
