The River Walk, starting from the car park near Avondale House and including some steep descents and climbs, is the longest and hardest of the walks at Avondale.

A great walk to enjoy all different species of trees including maple, beech, oak, Douglas and Silver fir, pines, cedars and larches. It is the hardest trail of Avondale with steep desecnts and climbs so strong footwear is recommened.
