I did this trail this morning, absolutely loved it

Great walk but map not accurate around the half way mark. path leads across private land

good trail for young children to learn more about wildlife

Some of the pathway itself is a bit dull as it's often in close proximity to housing estates or industrial buildings but Hatfield Forest is beautiful once you get to it. The old train stations are interesting to look at also. Good access by car and straightforward to navigate (virtually a straight line).

Decent trail but very busy due to going on a warm bank holiday. Flatford Mill is the highlight and some time should definitely be spent there.

Fantastic walk. Dogs thoroughly enjoyed the swimming opportunities. Took us just over 2 hours. Just fabulous!

We really enjoyed this walk on a fresh April morning. The bluebells were beginning to flower and the floor of the woods were strewn with wood anemone. Strenuous in parts but easily manageable in a couple of hours.

Easy walk around the best bits of the country park. Nice to take in birdwatching, the marina and river, a great play area for children and a cafe for a drink at the end and FREE parking as well.

Great walk, a little bit overgrown at the start, but well worth it.

Great walk. Lovely views, lots of animals and nice properties to see. Very good instructions. Make sure you stop off at Langham Church and meet Gerry the church cat.

What a beautiful varied and easy walking walk - definitely do this again.
