Explore Boundary Wood
(Average user rating: 1 unrated 1/5)

This young woodland provides an excellent place to explore, while enjoying great views over the local countryside.

Surfaced tracks criss-cross the site and the SUSTRANS national cycle route passes through, heading north to Sherwood Pines Forest Park or South into Haywood Oaks.


Blue Trail
  • Moderate
The blue trail takes you around Tippings and Boundary wood. It take in several views over the Nottinghamshire countryside along the way.
White Trail
  • Easy
A short trail around one of the larger ponds. Watch out for cyclists, this trail joins on to the National Cycle route 6 for a short stretch.

All the tracks are very very muddy and churned up from recent Forestry work difficult to enjoy a walk anymore, are there plans to improve them?

Hi, We will be doing some work to reinstate the roads after the recent harvesting work. It is currently too wet to do this and we hope once its dried out we can get in and sort this out.
