Free parking at the Windsor great park open air car park. The 1st section was closed off due to minor flooding. We managed to walk along the road & enter the park at next entrance. Then rejoined the very muddy walk. After a km or so you join paved paths & it is much easier. It was very busy with walkers, runners & cyclists on a lock down pandemic Sunday. Toward the end, another section is closed off but we just walked around to find the path again. There is some great district & Windsor castle views about half way around. We ended up walking near 13km in 2.20. Would be better outside Winter maybe, but very enjoyable walk overall.
