This is a beautiful trail, lovely views and perfect with small children - highly recommend. It is very flat with grassy verges to stop for drinks and picnics and everyone else Doug the trail was friendly

Lovely walks along here with my new puppy & girlfriend. Always a nice view & such a calm walk. One of my favourites of Thame.

An easy ride for adults and young children and no traffic. It's not that it's anything special but it is quiet and relaxing. Parking close to the trail can be a problem.

8 mile ride to Princes Risborough, varied and interesting as it has lots of interesting sculptures along the way, used to be the old railway track. Lots of refreshments at the end.

Parking depends on the time and day you go, and at what point you intend to join the trail. At the end nearest the Lord Bill's Upper School in Thame, you could try parking in the school's top car park near the main road on a... More
