Cyclists can relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery in this 2,000 acre forest. The recently surfaced 6.25 miles (10km) family cycle track is a great route that allows visitors to enjoy the forest’s impressive trees and wildflowers, as well as some of Britain’s rare wildlife.
A more adventurous experience can be found on over 7.5 miles (12km) of single track that has been specially designed for mountain biking. The forest also includes a new, professionally designed ‘Freeride’ area, with a variety of challenging jumps and stunts.
For off-bike as well as on-bike thrills, the forest has an explorer-themed adventure play area and the ‘Go Ape’ high-wire forest course of rope bridges, tarzan swings and zip slides.
With a collection of over 10,000 tree specimens growing in 320 acres, the adjoining Bedgebury National Pinetum includes many rare, historically important and endangered trees.
