The Saffron Trail stretches for 70 miles passing through five county districts: Uttlesford, Chelmsford, Rochford, Castle Point and Southend.
Starting at Southend Pier, The Saffron Trail hugs The Thames until it reaches Hadleigh Country Park. It then turns inland towards Hockley Woods, before pivoting north towards Danbury, Chelmsford and Great Dunmow, and finally arriving at Saffron Walden, the one-time UK capital of saffron.
