    The Captain Woods Walk is a fantastic short stroll for families with younger children and dogs looking for an escape from the city! While there are some undulations, the elevation gain remains relatively low, making this a suitable adventure for all fitness levels. Enjoy dipping in and out of the woods and charming fields.

    The Captains Wood Walk is a fantastic family-friendly, dog-friendly walk that immerses you in the varied scenery stretching across the Chilterns.

After relishing in this woodland, you’ll head right at the next junction, emerging at the top of the circuit. Continue straight before taking the second right-hand turn, which will lead you back to Captains Wood and to your car, where your walk began
