Try the yellow trail in Eastridge Wood if you are up to a singletrack ride. As you enjoy the fun of this woodland's climbs and descents remember to take in the glimpses of the surrounding countryside.
Keep the Kids Happy
There is always lots for little people to discover and explore in our woodlands wherever they go, but if you would like a playground visit Birches Valley Forest Centre on Cannock Chase or Wyre Forest Visitor Centre near Bewdley. The teams at these visitor centres also run children's activities.
If you are out and about with a buggy try our all ability trails at Vinnalls near Ludlow, Haughmond Hill near Shrewsbury or The Wren trail in Wyre Forest, they are flat and so suit small wheels and little legs alike.
The deer rutt is just around the corner, keep your wits about when driving in wooded areas, the deer have their minds on other things and may not notice you!
