The Forestry Commission operated Great Wood, consists mainly of coniferous woodland, with areas of heathland, ponds, streams and sweet chestnut coppice. There is a wealth of wildlife, with Badgers and Deer, birds such as Nightjar, Tree Pipit and Crossbills, and many common woodland butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies.

This trail offers easy walking without stiles, although there are some hilly sections. After heavy rain the trail can be very muddy.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 1 hour 28 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 392 calories will be burnt.
