Riders route roadside signs

Ashridge Estate - In 2004 the Icknield Way Trail defined the route shown in blue. This largely uses a route open to vehicular traffic. The route in brown would be more direct and keeps ‘off road’. Brown route is bridleway between the blue route and the roads (yellow), but near Ashridge college it is a permissive bridleway which does not allow cycles. The Icknield Way Trail is a multi-user route suitable for walkers, horse riders and off road cyclists. Horse riders may wish to use the permissive bridleway shown on the plan.  In May 2012 National Trust turned down a request to upgrade the permissive bridleway to include cyclists.  The ‘brown’ route is not waymarked.

Horse riding on the Ashridge Estate, other than on bridleways, is controlled using a permit scheme.  Details are available from the National Trust  phone the mounted ranger on 01442 842716

The route in West Hertfordshire is now signed at the roadside.  Waymarking was improved during 2012.
