Welcome to Hertfordshire Walker


A growing collection of free walks suitable for all ages, from an hour-long potter to half-day hikes. We have walking tips for those new to rambling and a comment box beneath every walk for your feedback - you may need to disable any ad blocker to add comments.

Walks map

All our walks on one interactive map





We now have all our walks on one map, so you can navigate round the area looking for a walk that meets your needs. And all our walks now have the distance added to the titles, so that you don't need to open them to find out how long they are. Both these changes were suggested by regular users of this site, Jason and Carol, who have tried out many of the routes along with their dog Fred.

How to use the map

  • The left-hand icon in the blue bar below reveals the table of contents for the map. 
  • The square icon to the right opens the map in full screen. 
  • You can use the + and - signs on the map to zoom in 
  • Once you have zoomed in, click on the green walkers icon to reveal the walk details and find a link to the individual walk pages.


Reappearing maps on mobile devices



If you find the maps keep reappearing on the Google Maps app on your mobile device you can remove the 'layer' that shows the map. I have an Android phone and all you need to do is click on the 'layers' icon, (see icon below), and all your 'layers' will appear. Just tap on the 'Hertfordshire Walker' layer, and it will go away.


This solution was added after searching for a fix for one of the users of this site called Ray. Ray uses an iPad and says the view was listed under a ‘your places’ and ‘maps’ area. He says that clicking on 'close' removed the icons from the map and kept the listing for future use.

As always, feedback welcome. Please use the comments form below.

Thanks
