In celebration of 25 years since the creation of The Hertfordshire Way we are now releasing the route in digital format (GPX).This is supported by the third edition of the guidebook published in September 2017.

The Hertfordshire Way is a 195 mile circular route along public rights of way entirely within the county of Hertfordshire. It starts in Royston, moves west to Tring, then south to Kings Langley, and east to Bishop's Stortford before turning northwards to finish in Royston. The guidebook describes the route in counter clockwise direction but is also waymarked in the clockwise direction.

The route has been chosen to pass through a variety of Hertfordshire scenery, mostly in open countryside, but to also include some of our more attractive and interesting villages. The county town of Hertford and the historic city of St Albans are the only large towns on the route.
