Hardknott is currently open although trees still block some trails. Please adhere to all safety signage and at this time stick to main tracks and do not walk under leaning or hanging trees.
Take a walk within an exciting ecological restoration project in the heart of the Lake District.
The entire 630 hectare site at Hardknott Forest is being restored to native habitats of oak and birch woodland, peatbogs, heather and grassland.
Walks through the forest offer great opportunities to observe wildlife, enjoy stunning scenery and see the results of the practical work being done by the Restoring Hardknott Forest project.
