We enjoyed this walk as a family (3 adults + baby in bjorn) lovely rural setting, green everywhere, bit of river, OK.

Completed June 2019. Lovely flat trail, clear instructions/waypoints, beautiful nature and photo opportunities! Would recommend for an easy Sunday walk.

lovely flat walk with a welcome sit down by Ruscombe church. very dry underfoot as very little rain in past weeks.

A couple of updates on this walk. I will revise the walk when the development mentioned below is completed: - As you approach Piglittle Meadow, the path is diverted round the Amen Corner North building site. Follow the diversion and when you go through a gate by a Piglittle Meadow turn left to follow the path through a copse. When the path leaves the copse it climbs to the oak tree mentioned in the instructions. I think this diversion improves the walk. - When you reach the roundabout under the A329M I recommend that you follow the alternative route up London Road as the slip-road verge is currently overgrown. - Shortly after the instructions mention passing between concrete posts. There is now a shiny new kissing gate at this point.

Beautiful walk. Great and easy to follow instructions. Lovely wooded areas with spring flowers. Dog thoroughly enjoyed the river.

The walk starts out in a most picturesque place with stunning views of life in the water, the area is most acquatic. The path is easily accessible (difficulty: Easy) and it requires little effort to stay on track. Again, the views are wonderful and most enjoyable. There is ample opportunity for a rest or picnic along the way, as well as a few pubs on the water. Walking in June we witnessed an abundance of wildlife. Although there is no designated swimming site, here and there people were playing water sports and swimming. Great overall walk!

Beautiful trail for an evening hike.

Great way to get some exercise and fresh air locally. Have done this walk several times now in both directions!

Nice way to use a couple of hours while car being serviced and to learn a bit of Reading history.

Stunning views and countryside...however for someone who may be a beginner to walking it may be more of a moderate than easy walk as some very steep climbs.

Nice Route which I started in Windlesham. Just watch out for the golfers!!

This map only shows the top one of the two circular routes. I prefer the bottom circle as less people

Nice 2 hour walk on mixture of canal towpath, tracks, fields and lanes through the beautiful Berks countryside. Finishes at the Dundas Arms right in the canal got a well earned pint. Directions on the app were spot on and accurate.

It has been a good trail. I liked it very much but it was very tiring with my legs.I would do it again if it wasn’t so long.

Done this as a run a couple of times and always enjoy it, great views and not too difficult

Nice trail, especially at this time of year with all the yellow fields & some lovely views. A few road stretches though, so a little more tarmac than I would ultimately prefer. Despite this, would still do this walk again.

Good walk for a clear sunny day with excellent views across west Berks and south Oxfordshire. Paths were mostly clear, just a little rutted in places and had quite a few cyclists. No gates, styles etc.

Kintbury loop, station to station. Fields, woodland, canal. Well sign posted for public footpaths. Pubs en route.

excellent short walk

Disappointing. Easy enough to follow despite the fact that the directions for the last part of the walk appear to be missing. Main issue was that the majority of the walk was on roads and despite the reassuring comments in the guide, in places the traffic was fast and heavier than expected. The path through the woods was very attractive but the walk needs much more like this and fewer roads.

I am very unfit and found some of the inclines hard work, but the paths are mostly easy and there are some nice views.

Lovely for kids and dogs. Gravel path. Not too muddy. Some green algae though. Lots to do here. Took a shorter route as had the little one.

Lovely walker plenty of riverside walking. And a pub near the start.

Nice local walk . A lot of noisy dogs out of sight behind fences and hedges so take care if you have a nervous dog. Apart from the stile at Fleethill Farm in section 3 (the farm gate alongside was open today) they have all been replaced by metal kissing gates. Path is very narrow in places which might be an issue at busier times as it would be a challenge to pass other walkers between barbed wire fences and prickly hedges.

Nice walk however going through Ramsey Woods downhill we came to a few T junctions saying turn left. We did not see a stoney track in the woods. We went off course when we reached the main access track road and crossed over as per the instructions, but realised by sat nav we had gone wrong. Therefore we retracted to join the main access road again and luckily this took us the right route of the walk. As a tip I think it would be useful to have the Numbering against each paragraph to link to the map as some of the instructions repeat T junction turn left. This would link the instructions to the numbers on the map and make it easier. A nice walk and enjoyable.

Nice 3.5 mile walk. I found the Queens Oak was shockingly expensive. The Tally Ho close to point 2 on the map is more reasonable and has a nicer garden.

Very noisy and uninteresting. Would be okay after lots of rain because most of route is on solid surfaces
