Common Wood walks

A network of all-weather and natural routes

There are firm paths forming a circular route of about 2miles (3km) through the woods. However, only people with good mobility on sloping paths should attempt a complete circuit. If you are unsure of your mobility, you are advised to follow the path in a clockwise direction starting with the difficult section.

For an easier "out and back" route, follow Penn Bottom Path to the East
