Trail Centres

With more than 2,600 kilometres (1,600 miles) of waymarked trails and countless forest roads, the Forestry Commission have plenty on offer for every kind of cyclist.


There are wide flat trails for families through to hair-raising descents for serious mountain bikers. But whatever gets you pedalling, the Forestry Commission want you to be sure you are properly equipped.


Active Woods is a national drive by the Forestry Commission to promote the vast range of health and fitness opportunities offered by Britain’s woodlands. Hundreds of events are being organised across England such as welly activity days, den-building competitions and dog walks, reflecting the campaign’s three themes of naturally active, naturally stimulating and naturally relaxing.
