The Alban Way is a cycle path in Hertfordshire, England that has been constructed along the route of the former Hatfield to St Albans railway line. It runs from St Albans, close to St Albans Abbey railway station and the site of Roman Verulamium, through Fleetville and Smallford to Hatfield, ending close to Hatfield railway station. It is 7.5 miles (12.1 km) long and there is a graveyard on the track opposite Longacres park. Most graves are covered and few remain intact but they all come from the mental hospital that used to exist in the area.
The route is paved throughout, though rough in places, and has few steep slopes making it a good off-road route for children.
In Hatfield the route joins The Great North Way (National Cycle Network route 12) and in St Albans will link to National Cycle Network route 6.
Uno bus route S4 provides a link to the start of the route by Cottonmill Lane. Passengers should alight at Weyman's.
