Get out and about on foot.

There are hundreds of miles of paths and trails to explore in the National Forest, and plenty of places accessible for all ages and abilities. Grab your walking boots, your trainers or your dog and head out into the woods for a walk or a run, or try your hand at orienteering or geocaching. Each step in the National Forest can take you somewhere completely different. Follow gentle trails through vibrant young woodlands and nature-rich ancient forests. Discover more about the area’s heritage or just let a canal towpath take you to the nearest pub lunch.

Places to walk

Here are just a handful of the great woodlands and sites where you can stretch your legs in the National Forest. If you can't find what you're looking for visit our Visit Search, where you can search for all walking activities in the Forest.
