Lincolnshire, England Map

Enjoy this flat walk. Different types of path keep it interesting. Towpath, lane, footpaths across fields. Not too taxing easy to follow. A very nice walk.

Excellent relaxed quiet walk through Lincs hills and beautiful village of Fullbeck. Hare and Hounds pub excellent for Sunday lunch. Very dog friendly walk as no obstacles. One field needed a detour around but paths has been cut around the edge so no problems. Lovely and definitely walk it again.

nice walk

good walk, can be muddy when wet.

Great trail, from bustling town centre to being out in countryside where you think you're the only person for miles. Lots of surprises along the way. The last mile or so is dull so get your head down and sprint for the pub. Gorgeous walk for a summers day but in winter there are tracks that could be very muddy. I'd advise going during a dry spell. Watch out for the carved shepherds bench-it is stunning but easily missed.

Great walk and well sign posted, love it that we literally saw no-one

Excellent dog-friendly (some livestock in parts) walk, well described and through delightful scenery. And a splendid, dog-friendly pub (The Chequers) at the end. Perfect!

Quiet and peaceful walk, not a soul around. Not particularly exciting. Getting a bit overgrown in places but that is the nature of Lincolnshire footpaths - it is not a county of walkers. A fair bit of it is exposed so wrap up on cold windy days. Saw a swan, two buzzards and some swallows.

great atmosphere for the dogs!

Fantastic route this was my 1st ever hike and I loved it, the Bluebell pub was the perfect stop off for a last spur of the hike rest

Lovely views and something different to look at along the way ... shame you can’t get into the Old Nocton Hall Military Hospital to explore...

Lovely peaceful walk, mainly off road, entire route accessible, takes you through Heckington village where you can get a nice cuppa from the windmill tea room, would definitely walk again

nice walk on a sunny day

Hilly. Moderate fitness required. One stile to lift the dog over. Lots of gates but easy to manage. The road walk lasts about 10-15 minutes; keep dogs & kids close by. Beautiful scenery and saw a fox carrying something in its mouth

Great walk with dogs & children. Lots of gates but pretty flat & easy going for moderate to low fitness

Nice little hike, though towpath was closed for the first section so we used the parallel disused railway path instead.

lovely walk

An appalling walk with difficult overgrown parts and some of the path destroyed by farmers.

This is a lovely little walk, great for little ones. The parking is free, but watch out as you could miss the entrance quite easily! lovely views of the lakes, birds and wildlife.

Walked this with my gorgeous daughter today. A lovely pub lunch at The Chequers then the walk which was beautiful (and flat!). Highly recommended.

Lovely woodland walk, especially good for dogs who love a swim!

This is an amazing walk, lots to see, somewhere to sit for a well earned cuppa and bite to eat along the way. Cannot express how much we enjoyed this walk today.

it is a short route and easy to go off the track, a quiet area with great views.

Nice walk, best bits in the first half with the Church, Templar Tower, Horse Gin. Viking way must have been cleaned up since previous reviews, though still rutted and occasional dirt bike. We had a peaceful time and the directions were clear.

Weather perfect for a February 6.50mile walk, amazing to see a kingfisher a whit heron also a grey heron, also hearing the sound of a woodpecker as we passed some woods, good open views, lucky we didn’t have any issues with cows, I would give this walk 4 out of 5.

Be very careful in that grass pasture in winter at the top end near the gate - I sank nearly to my knees in mud and had a struggle to get out

very enjoyable walk, bit muddy in places in December but not a problem with boots on. plenty of birds to see, even saw an eagle

A fantastic walk! If you ever want an example of why Lincolnshire is so beautiful, then take this stroll!
