Forest of Dean Family Route --Submitted by David Curtis
Family Cycle ride around the Forest of Dean:
This circular route takes you along National Cycle route 42 and the Wye Valley path through the delightful Forest of Dean. The route takes place on off road paths making it ideal for families.
This route is also suitable for walkers.
The route passes close to the fascinating Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail. The trail takes you to a unique collection of high-quality, contemporary sculptures in a beautiful setting. You'll also pass the delightful Cannop Ponds which is a lovely place to stop for a picnic.
You could also try the Coleford Milkwall and Parkend railway path. The trail follows the disused Coleford Milkwall and Parkend railway from Coleford to Parkend. It is suitable for both cyclists and walkers.
