Horse riding at Birklands

We welcome horse riders at Birklands on the two bridleways that run through the wood. Please keep to these bridleways and do not ride in the wider forest. 

The route 6 and route 648 bridleways are as marked as SUSTRANS, or have been marked by rights of way. There are these two routes through the forest but there are additional parts of bridelways that link Edwinstowe to the SUSTRANS routes.

No permit is needed to ride at Birklands and there are no gates or barriers to cross to access the bridleways. 

For more information on our facilities, opening times and contact details, please see our visitor information.
