Easy access trail

Jointly funded by Forestry England and the Friends of Chopwell Wood, this is a circular walk through the pine woodland adjacent to the main car park. The trail has a specially laid surface with no inclines, making it ideal for access by wheelchair users and as a starting point for those taking the first steps into woodland recreation. A number of picnic tables scattered along the trail also make it the perfect spot for lunch or a read of the Sunday papers! Of particular interest on this walk are the Spirit and Orchid sculptures.
