Walking at Ashridge Estate
We often tell visitors that they can get the most out of Ashridge on foot. Whether you’re tackling our popular 17 mile boundary trail or just taking a stroll along Duncombe Terrace, our estate is a place of space, fresh air and freedom.
Walking in the Ashridge countryside
There are over 80 miles of designated footpaths and bridle paths for walkers wishing to plan their own route. For those who want a simple waymarked route, the ancient tree walk and the woodland walk both start and finish at the Bridgewater Monument.
We've got a package of four waymarked walks for you to follow during your visit. Taking in different parts of the estate, they range from a one-mile family stroll to a heart-pumping eight-mile hike for those who love nature.
For those who want to go a little further afield, we have a selection of self-led walks. Download them before you arrive and make your own adventure. Each trail gives clear directions for you to follow and extra information about the things you'll see on your way round.
