About this walk

Four trails available in Chopwell, both marked throughout the forest.

The purple route is short and wheelchair accessible, a total of 0.5km

The blue route (old railway footpath) is classed as moderate, a total of 2.2

The red route takes you near the river Derwent and follows it until you loop back to the car park. It's is classed as a "Hard" walk on the forestry commission's website but there are only a handful of small inclines along this route and most of it is fairly flat. You will need walking boots as parts are quite muddy along the river. This walk is 5.3km in total. Stunning views along this route.

As with the red route, the green rout is classed as hard. This is the longest route at chopwell 7.5km in total. Again walking boots are needed on this route. At points this route crosses with the red route and so you can change direction if you do wish. A lot of beautiful sculptures are along this route along with the more remote areas of the forest.
