This section of the Colne Valley Trail links Rickmansworth to Uxbridge. It runs through some of the most attractive areas of the Colne Valley and provides excellent views of the River Colne, lakes and the Grand Union Canal. The route runs parallel to the towpath for much of its length and is intended to be shared equally by cyclists and walkers. Come along to Colne Valley Regional Park Visitor Centre and grab a copy of the Colne Valley Trail Map or find a downloadable copy here. Along the tow path for refreshments, you will also find Jack’s Mill Café and B&B at Black Jack’s Mill, Harefield, the Coy Carp pub, Harefield and Bear on the Barge. Enjoy spotting the local wildlife, variety of historical industrial buildings and narrowboats you will see along the way.
Please note, at the southern section of the Colne Valley Trail at Colnebrook, Old Slade Lane Accommodation Bridge is closed for the rest of 2020 (this is due to M4 smart motorway works). For further information click here.
As part of the Landscape Partnership Scheme, a new and updated version of the Colne Valley Trail will be produced in the next 3 years.
