Home to foxes, deer, badgers and many woodland birds, Hagg Wood provides the perfect woodland visit for any wildlife enthusiast! At different times of the year you can hear the call of woodpeckers, wood pigeons and cuckoos.
It's also a great place to spot bluebells in spring, as well as primroses, yellow pimpernel, wood anemone and dog violets, which you'll find growing along the woodland rides and clearings.
Wheldrake Wood is a fantastic place to escape the everyday bustle of York and stretch your legs with a woodland walk. With an abundance of wildlife, mixture of trees and network of informal paths, Wheldrake Wood is the place to go for your next outdoor adventure.
Starting from Broad Highway Car Park, you can choose to stay on the main path or for the more adventurous, explore further by branching off on smaller trails.
Experience stunning views and visit the iconic Kilburn White Horse at Kilburn Forest.
Kilburn White Horse is the most northerly turf-cut figure in Britain and one of the most famous landmarks in North Yorkshire. It's easily visible from the south, below Sutton Bank, and while it's difficult to get a sense of its scale from the path on the escarpment edge above, there are steps down the side which give a closer view.
