National Forest Walking Festival 2024


    18th May 2024 - 30th May 2024

    National Forest Walking Festival

    This popular annual event, now in its 15th year, offers a variety of trails and experiences for all walking levels and abilities.


    18th May 2024 - 30th May 2024 12:00 am

    The National Walking month falls during May, and we think this is one of the best times of the year to be outdoors in the National Forest. From the drama of spring blossom, the heady scent of bluebells carpeting ancient woods, and the chance to see wildlife in abundance are all wonderful for the mind and soul.
