The route has potential and the views from the top are lovely, but today's walk (January) was ruined by the sheer volume of mud. Vehicles had clearly driven over the route very carelessly and churned up a filthy mud bath. It was just about acceptable as a walking route, but on the cusp of being just too muddy to enjoy. Shame.
Forestry Commission Response
Hello, I'm sorry you found the walk too muddy. Sections of the trail are used for vehicle access as this is a working forest. Unfortunately January is a muddy month in all our woods.
