Come for a great day out in the woods! You can walk, cycle, play or have a picnic in these lovely woods. Experience life in the trees with Go Ape, take a relaxing break in our café and finish your visit with a quiet stroll in one of the more remote parts of the forest.
Easter Clue Trail
Running from the 28th March to the 19th April.
Buy your clue sheet from the Cafe for £2, solve the clues and find the wooden eggs hidden along the Easy Access Trail.
There is a small chocolate treat for every completed sheet returned to the Cafe and a chance to win a Discovery Pass.
Where does your money go?
The money you pay to park your car, buy a cup of coffee, hire a bike or to take part in an event helps us to look after your forest.
The Alice Holt team wants to say a huge THANK YOU to all our visitors for helping to keep Alice Holt Forest a fantastic place for people, trees and wildlife.
Cycling at Alice Holt
Our new cycle hire provider is on site with a range of adult and children's bikes available.
The Cycle Centre is open 7 days a week from 9am till 4pm. For further information call 01420 521297 or visit their website.
'Cycling for All' groups will continue to be supported by volunteers.
We're launching a new Cycle Activity Trail at the end of March.
There are 6 posters along the Family Cycle Trail, each with information about the forest and things to do in each location.
Have fun, get the children to look out for the posters and maybe find out something you didn't know. Just get on your bikes and follow the trail!
Forest Discovery Trail
There are a series of posters along the Habitat Trail with information and activities all about forests.
Next time you're on the trail visiting the owl, why not take a look and have a go at some of the activities.
Calling all Tree Tots and Mini Rangers!

Construction in 2015
Due to our increasing popularity we are improving our facilities and car parking systems.
After Easter we will be implementing a new pay on exit barrier system using number plate recognition. This will mean that you will only pay for the exact length of your stay, so you can relax, without worrying about your car park ticket expiring. We'll be contacting all Discovery Pass Holders directly with more details.
This year will be a busy one as we also start construction of a purpose built cafe and new cycling facilities, which should be open for business towards the end of 2015.
The cafe will be located on the meadow adjacent to the Visitor Centre building and will be much bigger than the existing one.
Larger cycling premises will be developed in the yard area next to the all ability cycle trail.
We will keep you updated here and on our Facebook page.
Our Gruffalo's Child Trail has now finished but our Gruffalo sculpture is still on site.
The sculpture is located on the Easy Access Discovery Trail. Maps showing the trail and sculpture location are available from the Cafe and car parks.
The Cafe on the Green has a range of Gruffalo merchandise on sale (subject to availability).
Cosmos has landed!
We'd love to hear what you think of our brand new sculpture from Semiconductor, which is located on the Family Cycle Trail at the Rowledge end of the forest.
