Woodland Walking Trail

Trail description

The Woodland trail is slightly longer than the Forest Friendly trail and can be used by family walking and cycling groups. The surface is gravelled and also has sections of tarred forest road and wide timber boardwalk. There is minimal gradient on the trail making it suitable for buggies and small kids bikes.

The trail starts from the car-park and winds through large Spruce trees before reaching an open wild grass area. This is a popular area for fallow deer grazing in the long grass and if you are quiet, you may be lucky enough to see a family group here. This is a two-way section of trail and you may meet cyclists or walkers coming back from the longer routes in the park.

The trail continues on a section of  narrow trail through Spruce and large Japanese Larch and joins into the Forest Friendly trail just before the viewing platform.

Here you follow the Forest Friendly trail homewards.
