Things to do

The Fermyn Forest trail takes a gentle route from the visitor centre up into the woods.

The trail follows some of the historic woodland rides which have been laid out for many centuries.

The trail makes a steady climb up the hill from the visitor centre into Fermyn Woods.

A wide well surfaced path loops through this historic ancient woodland offering opportunities to sit, watch and listen to the wildlife. The moderate gradient may make this walk unsuitable for some people.
