Although it's England's largest forest, Kielder is not just about trees. At any one time, a quarter of the area of Kielder is open space, including England’s largest area of blanket bog. Kielder is also England’s most important red squirrel reserve, home to the biggest remaining population of red squirrels in the country.
At the northern end of Kielder Forest Drive, Blakehopeburnhaugh is the starting point for the Hindhope Linn walking trail. The trail leads you to the spectacular waterfall in an enchanting dell, a local sight not to be missed!
Reward yourself with a tasty picnic after your forest adventure or if you're keen to discover more, venture over to the Pennine Way long-distance footpath, accessible from the car park.
