...got any top tips?
Pop into the cafe on site to pick up a map, then plan your visit from there. Why not walk the Lodge Pond Trail? (marked with blue footprints). It is a more off-road trail, which takes in the centre of the forest and leads to Lodge Pond. The trail can get muddy! We recommend you book Go Ape and cycle hire in advance during busy times.
