These woods in Hereford have mountain bike trails and a Butterfly Trail for walkers. The area covers about 850 acres so there's plenty of different trails to try. It's great for wildlife with over 600 recorded species of butterfly and moth. Families can enjoy nice easy walking trails with picnic benches to rest and refresh yourselves. The Haugh Wood Butterfly Trails are particularly popular. You can follow the waymarked trails and look out for the information boards which show you the different types of butterfly you may see on your walk. You can pick up all the trails from Haugh Wood car park in the centre of the woods.
There's lots of footpaths to choose from including the Three Choirs Way long distance trail which runs right through the wood. The Wye Valley Walk also skirts the western edge of the woods. You could actually follow the waymarked path from Hereford all the way to the woods as an alternative route.
The woods also link with the Mordiford Loop. The circular trail takes you through the orchards, woodland and countryside surrounding the village.
