(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

An established wood mainly of pine and other conifers but with steep gills containing semi-natural woodland. The forest is extensively used for woodland research and there are areas containing unusual tree species. Areas of open heath are maintained and the forest is one of a number in the area noted for its summer population of nightjars, a nocturnal bird from Africa.

The Moors to Sea Cycle Route passes through the forest taking in the views at Reasty Hill Top.

The Blue Man Walk also passes through the forest connecting Broxa Forest with Langdale.
