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.

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

Is a hard-copy map of the main (colour-coded) trails available? I live locally and know the forest reasonably well, so I can get by, but this would be very useful for visitors from further afield (and even for me!)

Yes, there is a trail map availabe to but from the Forest Cafe, Bewdley Tourist Information Centre, Bewdley Outdoors and Hopleys Campsite. The map shows all 3 waymarked walking trails and the family MTB cycling trail. The map is also available to view by downloading the Forest Explorer Free App from iTunes or Android.
