Such a lovely, easy walk. By the time I parked and walked to the lock and walked all the way to the Swan Pub & back we actually did 6.67 miles. I had my dog off lead for pretty much the whole time and the river is very calm and slow flowing so she jumped in and out with no bother. The trail is more or less completely flat the whole way, if it has been raining there can be a few muddy spots but walking boots will be absolutely fine. The lock and weirs are pretty, there are lots of swans, geese and ducks all around and across the bank you pass by a huge Alpaca farm. In Pangbourne there is a nice green for picnics with a pretty bridge or there are a few pubs that allow dogs. We ate at the Swan and the food was incredible (it has outside area as well over looking the river and Pangbourne weir.)
