Horse Riding in Kielder Water and Forest Park

Horse Riders on Kielder water side track

The forest has dozens of miles of tracks and forest road to explore on horseback. There are no dedicated horse trails in Kielder Forest, although the Lakeside Way is open to horses. Horseriders are reminded that, unless specific closures are signed, horse-riding is permitted on all forest roads in Forestry Commission forests.
