AApproved by Fieldfare

This is an All Ability Trail that is managed by the Woodland Trust. The trail is accessed by the entrance on Liff Road. It meanders through a woodland that is rich with mature trees and is popular with local dogwalkers. The trail has wide paths but there are cross gradients up to a maximum of 10.9% (1:9) throughout the trail with much of the path having a camber of approximately 50cm wide. There are only two seating areas at the start of the trail at the entrance.
