I was looking for the easy trail but couldn't find the start of it . Help please

The easy access trail starts from the first small car park you come to in Wendover Woods. If you are at the main car park, head to the Toilet block, past it and turn left. Carry on this path to the end, where you will meet the small car park. The trail starts along the back edge of the car park.

Are dogs allowed off leads in all areas? I was at Burnham Beeches today and it was really difficult to find areas where did were allowed off lead. Thanks!

Yes, dog are welcome throughout the woods as long as they are under close control. By this we mean you are able to recall your dog and it is within your sight at all times. We ask that dogs are kept out of the Children's Play Area, and that owners consider putting their dogs on leads around the Café.

Could be a lovely place, but to be honest it lakes wild life. There is a long forgotten pond, nothing to offer education to adults, and it would be incredible to have small areas to allow camping

Its a shame that some cyclists choose to use paths clearly marked "no cycling" ,nearly got run over today by 2 mountain bikers, when challenged was told to get stuffed. How about permits like the horse riders, would make it easier to control people who misuse the facilities.

We have often enjoyed walking in these woods in dry weather but when we walked the 'Easy access' trail this first week of December, this is what we found. The very young may still cope but the very old or mobility-challenged will not find it pleasurable or safe, and I wouldn't like to push a wheelchair round there. Since you advertise it as an 'easy access surfaced trail', you may like to think about replacing the 'surface', which seems to have disappeared.

Thank you for your comments. The trail has been very popular this last winter and the surface has suffered. I am sorry this spoiled your visit. We are planning to start a series of visitor improvements next year which includes a new easy access trail and play trail to improve accessibility across the site.

Wendover is a brilliant day out all year round family with a great adventure play park, stick house building, cycling, bird looks outs and a cafe. Our 4 and 11 year old always love it.

Many of the paths poorly signed especially a long way from the cafe. Got a bit lost. No very useful maps for sale or on display.

Toilets very good Parking fine.

Thanks for your comments. We have leaflets available from the main information point in the woods. These are filled up each morning. However we do have a limited supply as we are waiting for a new order so apologies if they had run out. There is also a map one can download from our website at www.forestry.gov.uk\wendoverwoods
