Horse riding at Hamsterley Forest

The forest has two horse riding trails which start and finish in the Grove Car Park (two miles along the Forest Drive). Here there is a mounting block, tether post and ample space for parking a horse box or trailer.

Both trails are on forest road and offer the opportunity to explore deep into the quieter areas of the forest. Once you get to know the forest, set off and explore the miles of forest road and trails that are not way-marked.
