As you can imagine the forest trails are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably see plenty of other owners with their pets on your visit.

The circular Kidderminster Canal Walk visits the park from the nearby town. It first follows the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal to Kinver before heading up to Kinver Edge and then descending into the adjacent Kingsford Forest Country Park. At the end of the route there's a fine canalside pub to enjoy too.
