tackle the great yorkshire forest

Dalby Forest, located in the North Yorkshire Moors, is famous for its fierce terrains and far-reaching views which draw an international crowd.

With over 8000 acres of woodland to explore – there’s something to keep everyone entertained.

There are 13 walking trails, four running trails and six cycling trails. Bring or hire bikes as there’s 55 miles of cycle routes which range from family friendly to highly technical, demanding routes.

There are two play areas to get the children blowing off steam and there’s much to be discovered in the Enchanted Wood. Look out for the living willow arches, owl carvings, a mystical fort, giant insects and a spider in the trees. The whole family can put their map reading skills to the test as they tackle the Gruffalo Orienteering route.

Pack the charcoal, with multiple BBQ and picnic sites you’re sure to enjoy some al fresco dining or grab a bite to eat and a drink in the café. Worried you won’t have time to fit it all in? Bring your tent as there are camping facilities.

  • Great fun, kids really enjoyed the freedom and controlled danger. Still not cured my nervousness of heights. Maybe next time. Great staff.

  • This was my first Go Ape experience at Dalby Forest in Yorkshire and I absolutely loved it! The staff were friendly and approachable. They take safety very seriously with good instruction before being allowed to enter the tree tops. There are different levels of difficulty to choose from so you can “tailor make” your own experience. We chose the more difficult routes which made for a better experience and more laughs! The zip wires through the trees were amazing and the cargo nets test your climbing skills! You have to have a certain head for heights and be physically fit enough to be able to climb. We’re planning our next trip already! We booked an early adventure which in hindsight was a good idea as we missed the large volume of people that arrived later In the morning and able to get a parking space. The visitors centre was very busy with a picnic and BBQ area outside. Overall a great day and highly recommend making a day of it. There are also bike routes and Segway adventures as well as running routes to try. The scenery is stunning.
