The Ivanhoe Way is one of Leicestershire's long-distance paths, created by Leicestershire County Council and the Leicestershire Association of Parish and Local Councils, to celebrate the centenary of civil Parish Councils in 1994. It is a tour of some of the finest areas of the National Forest. It features gently rolling hills, diverse woodland and agricultural land. It follows canals, rivers and parks and there are plenty of styles for climbing over! The Route is waymarked with green diamonds and features on Ordnance Survey mapping.
