Start and finish shown at the cafe in Oak Hill Park but in practice you could join the route anywhere.  There are numerous bus routes intersecting and the route passes close to Arnos Grove underground station (Piccadilly Line).  The entire route is on surfaced paths so ideal for wet weather, there are a few short road sections and some busy roads to cross but there are traffic islands available and for the most part this is a surprisingly quiet green corridor through Barnet and Enfield, there is much wildlife in evidence.

From the cafe, turn left towards Church Hill Road turn left and left again into Parkside Gardens, cross over and continue then take the second right into East Walk (just before the bridge over Pymmes Brook).  Continue along East Walk, if it's dry you can walk on the grass alongside the brook.  When you reach Osidge Lane turn left and cross at one of the pedestrian islands, cross the bridge over Pymmes Brook and turn right on the surfaced track through Brunswick Park.  This follows the line of the brook on the right, there is open space on the left at first and then the trees close in with abundant bird song being heard.  You approach the high red brick viaduct which carries the Piccadilly Line trains, cross the road at the island, be especially aware of traffic exiting the roundabout from the left. 

Enter Arnos Park through the gates slightly to the left of the crossing, follow the tarmac path with Pymmes Brook on the right, take the first left turn towards the trees and follow this round to the right.  This path is crossed by another coming down from the ornate iron gates on the left, turn left and then immediately right on a tarmac path through the woods, follow this along the perimeter of the park through an avenue of trees with open ground to the right.  As it curves right, take the exit route on the left and out of the park onto Wilmer Way, turn left and cross where convenient, at the second roundabout cross over to the corner entrance into Broomfield Park.

Turn left on the narrow tarmac perimeter path where there are several benches available if you need a rest, including one dedicated to "Socks - The Dog".  Follow the perimeter path as it curves right and runs alongside Aldermans Hill on the left.  Broomfield is a more formal park than the others, there is a cafe, remembrance garden, pitch and putt, several playgrounds and exercise equipment as well as the burnt out ruins of the historic Broomfield House.  Continue round the perimeter, on a clear day you will see views all the way to Canary Wharf and Alexandra Palace.  On the south edge the path exits the park briefly and then re-enters via a white painted doorway, navigate past the buildings and then alongside the small lake with a bandstand and much bird life.  Turn right again onto the southern perimeter path to reach the corner gate you entered by. 

Continue down Wilmer Way and then turn right into the gates of Arnos Park again.  At the end of the short access path turn left and follow the tarmac path with Pymmes Brook again on the left, as you pass the left turn to the playground area there are toilets under the viaduct arches.  Otherwise follow this path all the way to the exit by the railway viaduct, cross the road and follow the path back through Brunswick Park, at the end cross Osidge Lane and by way of variation take West Walk with Pymmes Brook on the left, at the end cross Parkside Gardens and enter Oak Hill Park via the vehicle entrance passing the car park on the right.  Do not cross the bridge over the brook just past the tennis courts but keep going along the tarmac path with the brook on the left.  You may see ducks, herons and egret along this section as well as some of London's ring neck parakeet population.  The path here is liable to flooding after heavy rain, if this obstructs you there is another path running parallel if you turn left at the bridge and then right past the bowling green.

At the end of this path turn left over the bridge and then immediately right onto a tarmac path with the brook on the right, at the end turn sharp left on the path with Church Hill Road on the right.  Follow the path, there is a short hill section about half way along to remind you how far you have walked.  Continue through the avenue of trees to reach the cafe and your start point.
