Enjoy miles of cycling and walking trails in this large area of woodland near Alnwick. The forest has two waymarked walking trails. One is an easy trail of 2 miles and the other is a more challenging 5 mile walk involving some climbing. The area is also popular with mountain bikers as there are a number of very good off road trails to try. On the trails you can climb Thrunton Crag and enjoy wonderful views towards the Cheviots.
A few miles to the south of the woods you will find the splendid Cragside Country Park. Here you will find peaceful woodland trails, Nelly Moss Lakes and two waterfalls.
Also nearby is the delightful Hulne Park. The extensive park has several waymarked trails with woodland, riverside paths and wonderful views from the high points.

Head south of the woods to Cragside and there's a nice National Trust cafe for refreshments. To the north there's the little village of Whittingham which has a mobile fish and chip van.
With miles of nice wide trails the woods are an ideal place for a dog walk. You'll probably see plenty of other owners with their pets on a fine day.
