|Trent Park Circular|
|Author: Claire, Published: 07 Jan 2013||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 3 mile circular walk through Trent Country Park, part of the Metropolitan Green Belt in the London Borough of Enfield. A wonderful mix of wild woodland and landscaped parkland, the walk transports you back in time. A popular venue with local residents, there is plenty of opportunity for both children and dogs to make new friends! |
The park is open during daylight hours. The walk follows a mix of tarmac paths/avenues and woodland paths, the latter of which can be uneven underfoot and can get quite muddy in winter and after wet weather. There are no stiles and just a few kissing gates on route. There are a few gentle climbs and descents throughout. The park has a cafe and toilets located alongside the car park at the start of the walk. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.
The walk starts from the Cockfosters Road car park in Trent Country Park.
|Start to Signpost|
Start point: 51.6571 lat, -0.1502 long
From the Cockfosters Road car park, stand facing the cafe and look to the right. Take the wide woodland path beyond a vehicle barrier, immediately to the left of the Enfield Borough Council information board. After just a few paces you’ll pass another sign detailing the London Loop, which the park forms part of.
|Signpost to Kissing Gates|
Start point: 51.6624 lat, -0.1378 long
Keep straight ahead signed for Hadley Road on the wide path climbing steadily into the next belt of trees. At the top of the slope continue ahead on the main track. Keep right at the fork and you will emerge to a crossroads with another information board. Turn right here signed as Bridle Path.
|Kissing Gates to Old Stables|
Start point: 51.6643 lat, -0.1274 long
Go straight ahead through this pair of gates and continue on the path through the woodland, crossing over the wide bridge. At the next junction keep straight ahead, once again passing through (or alongside) a pair of kissing gates. Keep ahead alongside the vehicle barrier and you will pass a few properties on the left.
|Old Stables to End|
Start point: 51.6596 lat, -0.1342 long
Turn right and then bear left to follow the tarmac access lane passing directly in front of the old mansion.

A really lovely walk, especially on a winter morning with the sun shining. On the day of our walk (6 December 2014) the section through the garden to the Old Stables was closed off, so we went behind Trent Park House instead of in front, but we were rewarded by a lovely view of the other side of the valley, up towards obelisk.

We had a lovely walk today, Easter Sunday. Bit muddy under foot in parts but very pretty with the spring blossom and daffodils. Section though garden to Old Stables still closed off but there were plenty of ways around and we still saw the magnificent front of Trent House.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
