Wyre and its surrounding woodlands are fantastic places to enjoy the fresh air and and have fun outdoors. There is something for everyone all year round, from walking and family cycling to Go Ape, learning and adventure play.
The Wyre Community Discovery Centre provides programmes for schools, holiday activities for families, and wildlife and craft courses for adults.
Discover Wyre on foot along one of our three waymarked walking trails.
Explore Wyre on two wheels along the blue cycle trail.
Enjoy adventure high above the forest floor, taking on zip-wires, tarzan swings and a variety of obstacles! Mini-Tarzans can also get in on the action with Go Ape’s Tree Top Junior course (min age 4yrs and min height 1m). For more information and to book visit Go Ape.
There are several horseshoe routes around the forest that link up to public bridleways.
Come along and take part in a range of fantastic events from fungal forays to fairy tale trails and family dusk walks.
Children will have hours of fun in the adventure play area.
Much of the area is also designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)and many rare species of flora and fauna can be found here.

Excellent walks. The forest absorbs lots of people so it never feels busy or crowded. The cafe is nice but I wish it had more choice for vegetarians.

The trails are great and the Gruffalo popular with little ones but its all marred by dog-pooh every few metres along the short trail we went on - a hazard for toddlers and offensive to others. Also the soak-away (or something) had gloopy mud in a channel by the path near the end and the toilets need more cleaning on a busy day. Maybe a promotion and unobtrusive bins on the path or fines could deter dog owners for spoiling other people's enjoyment.
