This route starts at Roydon Road and runs generally southwards to pass under the A414 via a good-height underpass. It then passes into the Lee Valley park area, and runs westwards, parallel to the A414 to a junction with a Parks Path. The bridleway continues southwards, offering good views of the lakes, to end on Toll Road.

At the time of the BHS 2021 Access Survey (5 Sep 21), no gates were across the path and it was signposted at each end. There was one step-over gate just south of the A414, but the space to the side was sufficient for most horses.
