About the route

From the family cycle trail walk down the hill to the cross roads. Head south and turn right where you will find a steep incline. Take a moment to rest and look out across the forest. Once you reach the top, there is a large timber stacking area which is a great place to spot some butterflies while you catch your breath.

Turning onto the easy access trail, you'll experience the tranquility of the deep dark woods under our beech trees. You will really be able to connect with the calmness and beauty of the forest. The walk finishes at the beginning of the easy access trail and leads to our small car park. Follow the path back to the Hub area where you will find our cafe, toilets and the Visitor Centre.
