Milton Keynes Walks
I spend lots of time on Milton Keynes Walks, while I walk all over the country, where possible, quite a few walks I take are in my home town of Milton Keynes. As one might expect. These rambles are anything from short strolls around my local nature reserve to longer hikes and treks at various other locations around the town,.
I thought with all this walking in Milton Keynes, I would gather links and details to them all here. A one stop place as it were to find lots of Milton Keynes walks (not each time I walk an area but each time I write or post about a one of my Milton Keynes Walks it will be linked from here). So if you are looking for walks in Milton Keynes you have come to the right place.
The table below will offer those links as well as a brief detail of where each walk is and will also have a link to both the Ordnance Survey and Outdoor Active downloads, to make following them easier for you if you so choose – Ordnance Survey offer a paid mapping system, which is great value for money, while Outdoor Active is a free app (I think was called View Ranger!) that you can use to follow, or map, walks.
With this page I hope to dispel the idea that Milton Keynes is only about Round About’s (yes we have lots in MK) and Concrete Cows (yes they are real). It is just as much about open spaces; art; and architecture. And is a great place for hiking. Many of the walks will also focus on the wildlife you can see along the route.
This page will grow overtime, and hopefully become a useful resource for anyone walking in and around the town; or looking for Milton Keynes walks of various types.
When I put up an Ordnance Survey or ViewRanger walk I try and include parking locations if there are any. I also try and add bus details, but they are frequently changing, so I’m not sure I can keep them accurate sorry.
