The Buzzard trail is the longest of our way-marked trails and explores the depths of the forest through beautiful mixed woodland.
The trail takes you along forest tracks and narrow paths, past majestic old oaks and through a wide range of habitats, as well as the Wyre Arboretum. Follow the red way markers from the Wyre Cafe.
The trail is very popular with runners, and uses a network of tracks and roads of varying surfacing with some steep inclines and declines, so it's great for a true cross-country trail run!
An accompanying Z-fold map is available from the Forest cafe.
What do other visitors say?
Every time I go to Wyre Forest it seems to get more decimated. It looks a mess! Large tractor tyre tracks, fuel canisters, no wonder the wildlife suffers. No care is taken to manage the forest sympathetically as far as i can see. Please can someone sort this out!

We did the Buzzard walk, but it was so muddy, up to our knees and very unkept with very large tyre tracks making it very hard to walk. There was shooting going on, which was very loud and frighten my dog. We walk all year round in the Forest of Dean and the paths are never that muddy. Not an enjoyable walk!

First time we have walked in the Far Forrest. The route was easy to follow and it was a pleasant easy walk in the sunshine. We were surprised at the number of dogs running off lead especially as there were lots of children (some very young ) around as it is the summer holidays, and some dogs were not being controlled particularly well. Also, noticed that there are no bins along any routes for responsible dog owners to put foul into, so no wonder there is so much dog mess along the route. Just a few of bins would make a big difference
