Kilby to King's Lock along The Leicester Canal.

As is often the case with the Leicester Canal, the route goes through really nice countryside - plus there is plenty to look at on the way with some really nice bridges and quite a few canal locks. Several of the canal locks are really quite tight against their respective bridges - for instance at Kilby Lock and Whetstone Lane Lock. To start off the towpath is generally a quite narrow grass and dirt surface and therefore does suffer from muddy stretches after wet weather. However from Whetsone Lane Lock onwards the towpath is somewhat wider and does have a fairly firm surface.
