Walks And Walking – Epping Forest Chestnut Trail Walking Route

Walks And WalkingEpping Forest Chestnut Trail Walking Route

This is a walk in Epping Forest that I completed back in March that we decided to do today as the weather was so nice. So Mrs Walks And Walking got the child carrier out and we strapped Tedi in for this very gentle family walking route in Wanstead Park. It’s well signposted, very flat and covers just under 3.5 miles taking just under an hour and a half to complete. Below are the pictures from today and to see the full walk description and map please click here Epping Forest Chestnut Trail.

As we made our way from the entrance we followed the pathway and the distinct green arrow waymarkers seeing many large white egg shaped balls in the water, which we thought were probably Swan eggs, as well as not only one Heron we actually spotted two!

    Hello Mrs Walks!

    Lovely pictures and glad you enjoyed our walk. Hot Gossip: We are actually installing two more next week bringing the total of way marked trails on Epping Forest to six! Keep an eye out on our website from further information.

    Kind Regards

    PS – afraid its not a swan egg….it is a float to mark sausages full of barley straw that we put in the lake to combat blue green algae. The float means we can find them again to remove them

  2. Well you learn something new every day!
