Golders Green Tube Station
Golders Green
London NW11

Starting and finshing at Golders Green, this is a country walk inside London. It is suitable for existing, new and prospective members. Despite being well within London it is over 85% on tracks and paths , passes through several ancient woodlands and visits many bodies of water. It even goes along a disused railway line.

It is a good opportunity for prospective members or those just thinking about joining to meet existing members and find out more about the Central London Outdoors Group

If you can’t make this walk, please tell your friends as they might be interested
I will lead you past West Heath,  Parliament Hill (with one of the very best views of the City) and Highgate Ponds. Ascending Highgate Hill, we will   continue to Highgate Wood where I intend stopping  for lunch (you can buy a meal or a drink  or bring your own picnic to eat on the adjoining lawn) After going through Queens Wood we pass Highgate underground station (it is possible to leave the walk here),The Parkland Walk path is a ribbon of green woods high above the houses on  disused railway line. Crossing high above the Archway  we walk through  Waterlow Park to Highgate Village  then descend to Hampstead Heath passing Kenwood House Ken Wood itself and the strange oaks of Sandy Heath and the North End. Finally we walk down the Heath Extension before turning off to return to the start at Golders Green
