Note: The starting point for this route is on a residential road with NO Parking. Please find alternative parking and then walk into Swinley Forest. A circular forest walk into Swinley Forest starting from Vicarage Road in Bagshot. The walk passes though a lovely mix of landscapes including pine forest, mixed woodland and open heath. There's plenty of opportunity to enjoy wildlife with both deer and a huge variety of birds in plentiful supply. The route has a few climbs and descents and there are no stiles, just a few gates. The forest tracks and paths are reasonably well made but of course can get muddy after periods of wet weather. This section of the forest is a popular mountain bike area so you will be sharing the paths with bikes and some areas of the forest are grazed using Belted Galloway cattle so take care with dogs. There are no toilet or refreshment facilities on route. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours. Show more
