Greensted Country Walk

The Greensted Country Walk is an attractive 4 ½ mile circular walk near Ongar. It will take approximately 3 hours to complete. Alternatively you can split the walk into two shorter circuits; both of which are approximately 2 ½ miles long.

The footpaths on the walk are in good condition, but they will become muddy after wet weather, particularly Penson’s Lane and in very wet weather it is recommended to do the shorter route to avoid this section. There is a small amount of road walking involved along main roads, please take care whilst walking along these. Please follow the Country Code. Keep dogs on a lead near livestock, and keep to the footpath when walking across privately owned land.

There are several parking places along Ongar High Street, there is also a pay and display car park by Ongar Library.

More details and a map are contained in the downloadable leaflet.

For any footpath queries please contact Essex County Council on 08457 430 430.
