Eastridge Woods

Visitor information

A hill-top woodland with stunning views across the surrounding countryside

Eastridge Woods is enjoyed by visitors on foot, on horseback or on two wheels. Passing through the forest is the Shropshire Way, a long distance walking route covering over 200 miles of beautiful Shropshire countryside, which can be tackled in smaller sections.

A Ride Shropshire horse riding trail makes use of the forest roads, circling the perimeter of the woodland.

There are also some great mountain bike trails for those who likes roots, rocks and a little bit of mud. The trails in this wood were built in partnership with the Eastridge Trail Partnership.
