Macclesfield Forest is managed by United Utilities as part of the water catchment area around four reservoirs in the vicinity. The forest has a herd of red deer and various other wildlife which you may encounter on a visit. The reservoirs are home to many species of wildfowl and Trentabank is home to the largest heronry in the Peak District.
The forest is a working area and as the timber is felled and replanted, the woodland scenery is always in a state of change. As a result, the paths may be closed temporarily, so please follow the forestry waymarked trail numbers at all times.
