Icknield Way Path, Chiltern Hills

100 miles, 161 km, 8 days

Because this path is made up of old prehistoric tracks and roads, the Icknield Way is sometimes called "the oldest road in Britain". Whether this is true or not, what's certain is that along the 100 miles, 161 km of tracks there are many archaeological sites to explore. Already in medieval times, the road was known and documentated. Highlight of the trail are the Chiltern Hills, marked by layers of chalk and clay. Generally, the trail runs through open, pretty flat land.
