Great walks around Buckinghamshire

It’s nature’s last hurrah before the long sleep of winter. Why not go out and enjoy the show in the Chilterns Countryside, Hughenden, Cliveden and Stowe.

Golden woodland walks

When the trees start to blaze with orange, red and gold, a shady woodland walk is transformed into a dappled golden path, fluttering with falling leaves. 

Visiting a woodland is great for both body and soul. An autumn woodland glowing with colour and rich with the smell of damp earth is a wonderful, uplifting place to be. Everyone is welcome in the woods we look after. We want them to be loved, explored and enjoyed.

There are things we can all do to help look after woodlands, such as taking litter home, picking up after our dogs and not allowing them to chase wildlife. Careful not to widen paths too, or wildflowers can't grow at the sunny edges if they're compacted by feet.

Here are some great woodland walks near you.
