A steady, circular 5km route around Chopwell Wood

The 5k route begins north of the car park and offers a steady start along the old railway line. The trail then takes you on undulating forest roads and trails of the southern section of the wood. You will pass a variety of woodland sculptures and run along the beautiful Copper Beech Avenue.

This trail is a circular route where you will re-join the car park from the south, after a climb back up the valley.
