I will lead you past West Heath, Parliament Hill (with one of the very best views of the City) and Highgate Ponds. Ascending Highgate Hill, we will continue to Highgate Wood where I intend stopping for lunch (you can buy a meal or a drink or bring your own picnic to eat on the adjoining lawn) After going through Queens Wood we pass Highgate underground station (it is possible to leave the walk here),The Parkland Walk path is a ribbon of green woods high above the houses on disused railway line. Crossing high above the Archway we walk through Waterlow Park to Highgate Village then descend to Hampstead Heath passing Kenwood House Ken Wood itself and the strange oaks of Sandy Heath and the North End. Finally we walk down the Heath Extension before turning off to return to the start at Golders Green
There is no difficulty to the walk but some paths are slippery and will be muddy if there is rain , there are some steep ascents and descents. Waterproof boots or shoes are recommended to protect your ankles and keep feet dry Bring waterproof clothing and be prepared for a walk of this length. I expect to finish at about 4.30 but this depends on the pace of the group. If necessary there are many places en routenear bus routes.
Golders Green tube station at 10:30am
