Elland Park Wood
These woods in Halifax have some nice walking trails and pretty bluebells in the springtime. The site is located just to the south east of the town centre and consists of a network of footpaths and oak woodland.
The woods are positioned just north of the Calder and Hebble Navigation Canal. You can easily extend your walk by picking up the towpath and heading east to the Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve.
