Length - 6.5 miles / 10.6 km

Grade - easy/mod

Close to the county border between Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, Therfield Heath has a reasonable height advantage over the surrounding area and offers some good views over South Cambridgeshire. The early part of this Hertfordshire walk crosses the Heath to check out this scenery before crossing some equally attractive, rural and remote Hertfordshire countryside.
