Nestling in a steep-sided valley on the north-west outskirts of Tunbridge Wells, Hurst Wood features a number of non-native tree species on its eastern slopes.
The hybrid larch, American red oak and scots pine were all planted when the site was owned by the Forestry Commission, prior to its being bought by the Woodland Trust in 1983.
A small but beautifully picturesque steam flows through the woods from south to north in the western half of the site, with the slopes of the valley rising up to a flatter, more open area to the east.
Local walkers benefit from the excellent network of paths and rides present throughout the site, along with the steps, footbridges and stiles that further enhance public access. The woods are also often used by the three schools which border the site.
Hurst Wood is usually accessed from its southern boundary via Coniston Avenue, where there is informal parking.

Easy access information

This park and open space contains uneven trails, un-surfaced or narrow pathways. Also, there are width restricting features, such as stiles and narrow gaps making it difficult for visitors with pushchairs and/or wheelchairs to access some parts of the site.
