One of the forests' most beautiful secluded valleys, with a waymarked walk which never deviates far from the Lewisburn itself. On this route you are never far from the Lewis which gently flows through this secluded valley. Enjoy a family picnic, then take the Lewisburn trail for a peaceful stroll. This is an ideal place for children to play, either paddling in the river or discovering the adventure of the surrounding woods.
On this route you are never far from the Lewis which gently flows through this secluded valley. Cross over the Lewis by way of the footbridge at the Car Park and follow the way markers. When you come to the Forks cross over the bridge and turn right to visit the old packhorse bridge or carry on past several ponds arriving back at the car park.

Excellent ~2.5 mile circular Autumn walk, with my 6 & 8 yr old boys and their uncle and 16 yr cousin. Boys enjoyed playing in burn & running through trees. Quiet picnic site with good tables. We enjoyed the total peace on walk, not another soul seen today. Saw loads of fungi, obvious red squirrel activity (stripped cones on a favourite tree) and fantastic woodland of several kinds. Several interesting bridges. A surprise group of copper beeches looked great in the sun. Well-signposted paths should be ok for most walkers (in places the circular path likely to be too rough / stepped for buggies /chairs). A hidden gem - well worth a visit.
