Length of trail:6 miles
Trail is currently open
The network of horse trails within the wood provides extensive access for horse riders with permits. Most of the trail is on wide forest tracks and about half of it is surfaced.
Annual Riding Permits are available from the local office in person or over the phone on 0300 067 4160 (open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings).
We also do a day permit if you wish to ride for a day, 'test' the trails before commiting to a year long pass or have a friend visiting. These can be bought from the forest office in person or over the phone on 0300 067 4160 (open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings).
De-boxing is available in our exit car park for day permit holders. This car park should be accessed directly off the main road, rather than using the one-way Forest Drive. Continue along the main road, past the Main Entrance for 2 miles. The entrance is on the right, then turn right into the exit car park. Another de-boxing area is located off Hale Lane for use by annual permit holders.
