Route Filmstrip & Description

A lovely 1.2km loop track around this community woodland. Access via the B934 Perth Road from Dunning to Forteviot. The surface of the path is whindust, compacted firmly, although when we visited in April it had been raining heavily and there were some puddles plus debris on the paths from falling leaves. There are a few sections with a max cross gradient of 5.5%, and some sections with a max linear gradient of 11%. For further information see Woodland Trust website - http://visitwoods.org.uk/en/visit-woods/Pages/wood-details.aspx?wood=38574 To find a wood near you head to visitwoods.org.uk
