Map showing Bushey 36 bridleway and Bushey 68 bridleway Bushey 36 is a Restricted Byway running from Hilfield Lane generally southeastwards to a junction with the Special Crossing of the A41 by using the spare arch of the bridge carrying the A41 over the M1 motorway, the then up the A41 verge itself.

The plan shows, in blue, Bushey 68 from Little Bushey Lane to the A41, the yellow A41 verge route, the green Special Crossing of the A41, and Bushey 36 from the A41 to Hilfield Lane in red.

2005 news: the very steep part of the path (where it changes direction in the adjacent sketch map, has now been regraded and made less steep, which should make its use easier for walkers and riders.

At the time of the BHS 2021 Access Survey (7 Sep 21), there was a gate across the path at Hilfield Lane which had not been there in 2005. The gap to the side is insufficient for horse drawn vehicles. The path was properly signed at Hilfield Lane, although the sign did not indicate that this was part of the H25 London Orbital Bridleroute.
