Blackwater Valley Path

Walk sections of the 23-mile riverside path and discover the green spaces and recreational facilities en route.

The Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership has led the way in reviving this once forgotten corner of Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey, opening it up for access.

The footpath follows the Blackwater river through woodland and flower-rich meadows, linking a wide variety of nature reserves, country parks, water sports facilities and other recreational areas.

The path is mostly flat, has many sections that are easy to use and is becoming increasingly popular with walkers and cyclists.
