A 13-mile linear station-to-station route starting at either Brookmans Park or Welham Green stations and ending at Welwyn Garden City taking in part of the Alban Way and wandering through Symondshyde Great Wood. There are a number of pubs either on the route or just off. Parts can be muddy after rain. There are a few noisy stretches close to the A1(M), and you have to cross a few busy roads, but it's almost all on secluded paths with some stretches on quiet country lanes.
