Use one of our self-guided walks as part of your exercise routine.
Follow the step by step directions for a 6-mile (9.65km) walk with good views across wetland and lake in the Lee Valley Park and see what wildlife you can spot.
The walk instructions start from Epping Forest District Museum in Waltham Abbey.
Most of the walk is on solid pathways but some are uneven in places and may be slippery in wet and icy weather.
This walk will take approximately 2 to 3 hours, depending on your walking speed and what you stop to look at.
A sunny crisp morning is the perfect time to go on this walk for the best chance of seeing the birds and other wildlife noted in the documents above.
