Walking at Cannop Ponds

Walking at Cannop Ponds

Walking at Cannop Ponds is the perfect way to get some fresh air and explore some of the area's most beautiful landscapes.

A path takes visitors around both lakes where it is possible to walk and enjoy the wildlife.  These are not waymarked or surfaced and so maybe muddy during the winter.


Cannop Ponds can be accessed by the 13 km (8 miles) Beechenhurst trail.

This is a challenging walk with several ascents and descents on unsurfaced paths. An OS map is advised for this trail or Ramblers map available from Forest of Dean Ramblers
