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.
