We are keen to be cycle friendly and promote cycling in Walton-on-the-Naze. In the future we hope to develop a cycle leaflet – please get in touch if you are a local cycle group and would like to get involved with promoting cycling in Walton.
The current trails are all suitable for cycling – there are no styles or gates to prevent you cycling. See below for some tips about cycling the trails.
Short trail around the town, all on the road so suitable for road bikes.
Off road, all on grass suitable for mountain bikes, short ride ideal with children.
Part road, part footpaths, this trail goes through some narrow pathways where you will need to be aware of pedestrians. Mountain bike recommended as it is dirt pathways in part.
This trail is in the main off road and mountain bikes are recommended. Depending on how the paths are mowed in the wet weather (often using a tractor) the paths can be bumpy and quite challenging.
In addition to our trails, there is a cycle path, shared with pedestrians, along the promenade between Walton Pier and The Leas at Frinton. From here you can go up the slope to cycle along the seafront road to Frinton Golf Club, from where there is a dedicated cycle path to Holland-on-Sea, and then road access to Clacton-on-Sea.
