About this walk

We visited Stoney Wood whilst staying in Wirksworth. Walkable from the village or park close by. This place is part of a Millennium Wood planted in an old quarry. Great for a short walk to stretch the legs. Go up the steep hill to find the star disc at the top. Dogs can run free, lots of space, grass, winding tracks and trees for exploring and sniffing. Seems like a local dog walking spot. Lovely views over the Dale from the top. Walk into the village whilst you are there and walk up to the Puzzle Gardens area for cute lanes and cottages. Your dog will get lots of exercise from the hills!

    A beautiful little walk. Loved the views across the town, once you walked to the top too.
