This circular walk takes you from Kingsford Forest Park through lanes and byways to Coldridge Wood before returning to the start via the grounds of Bodenham Arboretum. It encompasses views of the local countryside and quiet lanes alongside and through fields. Several sections take you through woodland and past a couple of pools. Allow 2 to 3 hours to complete the walk. Some sections of the walk take place on tarmac country roads, others take place through fields. Stout footwear is essential. There is a steep ascent and later a steep descent. Both have wooden steps in place to assist. You will also need to negotiate several kissing gates and stiles. There are disabled toilets available at the start of the walk, and also free parking. There is a waymarked walk available from the car park that is suitable for wheelchairs - the Robin Trail. There are also picnic areas here.

A pleasant walk. Not to strenuous and 3mph was easily achieved. I only gave it 3 stars as a diversion was necessary at the westernmost point. This was due to a very clear signpost stating "No unauthorised access..."
