Mailscot Wood trail at Symonds Yat Rock

Mailscot Wood trail

Starting from the toilet block in the main car park, head south and pass through a wonderful mosaic of trees on this walk which takes in the best of the forest surrounding Symonds Yat Rock. Look out for wildlife hiding among the trees and absorb a panoramic view of the river from the viewpoint.

This is a challenging walk which is hilly in places. We recommend wearing sturdy outdoor footwear.
