The National Forest is full of wonderful trails, walks and attractions and we have compiled a booklet which highlights some of the best.

You can still make the most of our self-led opportunities booklet  (pdf, 39.4mb)for lots of ideas for walks in the National Forest for you to explore on your own or with friends and family. 

Thank you to all the organisations and individuals who have helped to create the 2022 National Forest Walking Festival. If you would like to submit a walk or activity for next year’s Walking Festival, please email by September 2022.

The National Forest Walking Festival gratefully acknowledges funding by South Derbyshire District Council, Leicestershire County Council and the National Forest Company.
