HOOP Hitchin Outer Orbital Path

19 km / 12 miles

The Hitchin Outer Orbital Path was created in the summer of 2010 as a way of linking up a whole series of paths and public right of ways (and a few urban roads) to make one 12-mile route around the town.
Itís a walk of great contrasts, including as it does historic townscapes, cosy suburbia, shady woodlands, sun-bleached field edges, and two wetland nature reserves.
