With an orienteering course, trimtrail, sculpture trail and play areas, Guisborough is a great place for a family day out. If you climb the heights of Highcliff Nab or Hanging Stone on a fine day you will be rewarded by fantastic views over Teeside and the coast.
Guisborough Forest Festival
On the 6th September 2015 the Friends of Guisborough invite you join in with their 12th fantastic Woodland Festival! There's so much to see and do including FREE childrens activities, Praying Mantas show and there might even be a Gruffalo! For more information call Pinchinthorpe Visitor Centre on 01287 631132.
Guisborough is a perfect place for a walk with access up on to the North York Moors and beyond. There are 3 waymarked walks around the forest through a range of different woodland types or why not venture up to Roseberry topping.
Explore the forest on two wheels along our two waymarked cycling routes.
