Grade of Trail:
Length of trail:3.25 miles
Trail is currently open
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.

Really enjoyed our walk today with our Westie but was slightly annoyed with the fact dogs should be on leads (which is what we thought when we read the notice) which ours always is but some people think that it's OK to think they are above the rules and there were dogs running loose everywhere. Two ladies were horse riding and were quite annoyed that dogs were running loose around their horses. It should be policed a little better as loose dogs are a nuisance to people and dogs on leads. One man hadn't even got a lead it was in the car.

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!
