1.5km Pine Trail
Ease in with a short, flat hard packed trail which takes you between the pine trees. This wide trail is great for a social run with friends and has the peace the wider forest offers, without being too far from the visitor centre.
1km, 3km 4.2km Heritage Trail
A smooth flat surfaced trail with 3 distance options available. Almost like road running with the cars replaced by trees and bird song. There are some very slight incline and declines across this trail particularly on the 4.2km loop.
5km, 10km, 12km Fir Trail
This trail is for those more experienced trail runners who like to wind through the forest avoiding roots and stumps along the way. Three distance options which follow yellow waymarkers in the depths of Thetford Forest. The longest route passes Thetford Warren Lodge
