The Way provides a route around one of the smallest counties visiting such as Codicote, St Albans, Tring, King's Langley, Cuffley and Bishop's Stortford with contrasting scenery and history.
The route passes through a variety of Hertfordshire scenery, mostly in open countryside but also through some of the more interesting and attractive villages. It includes the fringes of the Chilterns and Ashridge Forest, a National Trust estate. Hertford and St Albans, as the County Town and the main historic centre, are the only large towns on the route.
There is an extension not shown on OS mapping of some 24 miles providing an alternative more easterly route from Cuffley to Hertford, going into the Lea and Ash valleys. This is described in the guidebook in two legs, from Cuffley to Broxbourne (12 miles) and Broxbourne to Hertford (12.5 miles), making some 190 miles of route in all.
Although originally inspired by the Ramblers to celebrate the Ramblers' diamond jubilee in 1995, the Friends of The Hertfordshire Way is an autonomous group.
