Planted in 2007, Poppy Wood forms the northern gateway to The National Forest, the Midland's most famous forest. This newly planted woodland houses a mosaic of ash, oak, hazel and hawthorn trees, to name a few. See if you can spot something different on each visit! 

Surfaced and grassy trails guide you through the woodland which also includes picnic benches for you to make good use of the fantastic views across the surrounding countryside.

In the heart of the National Forest, Hicks Lodge is a former coal mining site that has been totally transformed by new plantings and exciting trails for you to enjoy.

A great day out for the budding cyclist, from tearaway toddlers to young teens perfecting their skills, we’ve got a range of trails for beginner to intermediate appetites.

Planted in 2002, this community woodland is the perfect spot for a family walk, a burst of exercise and even a picnic. It's also a great place to find some peace and quiet and re-set from the stresses of daily life. 

Seale Wood is developing into a working coppice woodland, with a goal to encourage the development of a local timber industry. 


Sensory garden at Rosliston

From surfaced trails and cycle routes to outdoor play areas, a cafe and a sensory garden, a visit to Rosliston Forestry Centre is a great day out for everyone!
