This walk starts from Whipsnade, an attractive village clustered around a traditional green. The route takes you from the Tree Cathedral to the open downs, offering magnificent views over Aylesbury Vale. Dunstable Downs is one of 200 commons in the Chilterns which all contain centuries of local history within them.
Fairly level walk; gradual climb if you go as far as the end of the Downs at Five Knolls. The route should be suitable for pushchairs.
