Family cycling route - circular, child-friendly trail

The Family Cycle route is a 3 mile circular route that starts close to the Visitor Centre and loops through the forest on the extensive all-weather network. 

Taking approximately 1 hour to complete at a leisurely pace, the Family Cycle route is ideal for those with small children who would tire on the longer trails or newcomers to cycling just wanting a leisurely quiet hour in the forest.  Picnic benches are dotted around the trail, which provide the perfect resting stops or somewhere to enjoy a picnic.
