There are several walking and cycling paths in and around Harpenden including part of the National Cycle Network along the LEe Valley Line this will take you all the way to Luton heading north (be aware that there is a road to cross at East Hyde) or to Wheathampstead in the opposite direction. Good starting points are by the Amble Inn at the bottom of Station Road and the Red Cow down Westfield Road. You can also walk or cycle the Nickey Line (see separate listing), which will take you to Redbourn and then on to Hemel Hempstead. And there are trails from the Nickey Line that will take you through the Rothamsted Estate (please be aware that this is a research centre so please stick to the paths) and to Rothamsted Park (the Rothamsted Trail).

If you fancy a stroll away from the town towards Redbourn the Nickey Line gives you nearly 9 miles of rural paths to run, cycle or walk the dog and children. It is great for beginner or nervous cyclists to avoid the roads. You can join at the new ramp entrance by Highfield Oval on Ambrose Lane or further on near Roundwood Park School on Park Hill. If you're feeling ambitious you can cycle all the way to Hemel Hempstead, but you can take some of the cut-off paths that will bring you into the back of Rothamstead Park.

Our Harpenden treasure hunt takes you past many local attractions and places of interest, the war memorial, Our Lady of Lourdes Church, St Nicholas Church, The High Street, and The Methodist Church, but more importantly they get you looking around opening your eyes to so many other things you would ordinarily walk straight past! Following the directions and solving the clues along the way you will have great fun exploring the streets and learning a bit about the area too!
