This Hertfordshire walk follows a section of The Lea Valley Walk, a recognised 50m/80km trail that starts near Luton and continues to Bow, in East London. Through the length of the valley flows the River Lea (or Lee), which at various times during the walk, you'll get to see, cross or walk alongside. Although much of the route is through rural areas, parts of Welwyn Garden City (WGC), Hertford and Ware are crossed.
