Ashridge Estate Boundary Trail

26 km / 16 miles

The Ashridge Estate Boundary Trail is a 16-mile circular walk that goes round the National Trustís Ashridge Estate, on the northern edge of the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. It was created in 1995 as part of the National Trustís Centenary celebrations. It uses public rights of way and a few permissive paths to closely follow the edges of the estate. Much of the walk is through beautiful beech woods so typical of the Chilterns, with a few sections through fields for variety, and the highlight of the walk is probably Ivinghoe Beacon, with its extensive views over the Vale of Aylesbury and towards Dunstable Downs. Leaflet for this walk is available at the Ashridge Visitor Centre.
