Walking

Walking is an ideal way to get to know Greensand Country and experience what it has to offer. When on foot you are closer to nature and able to take in the views, soak up the landscape and smell the fresh air.

There is a good network of Public Rights of Way in the area for you to choose from – whether you’re seeking a gentle circular stroll, a brisk walk up to a viewpoint, or a more challenging long-distance footpath.

The Greensand Ridge Walk is the area’s most famous route, running for 42 miles from Leighton Buzzard to Gamlingay and vice versa. But rest assured you don’t have to tackle it all at once! The walk can very easily be divided into shorter sections; and with good public transport links, pubs and B&Bs along the way, its no wonder that ‘walking the ridge’ is one of Greensand Country’s most popular outdoor pursuits.
