Haldon Forest

Haldon Forest is a great family day out offering miles of walking and cycling trails, play features, Go Ape! Highwire adventure course, cafe, the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World with opportunities for quiet reflection off the beaten path.


The miles of paths around Haldon Forest are open all year for walking and mountain biking to suit all abilities. The trails are well marked and feature delightful secret paths and features along the way which will amuse both young and old. You can hire bikes to use on the trails or take your own and park at the centre.  If you don’t fancy peddaling why not try the off-road Segways tour: travel in style on one of the gyroscopic-controlled, eco-friendly i2 & X2 Personal Transporters. We’ve tried them and they are fun!

The Go Ape! adventure course has zip-wires and climbing obstacles which can entertain for hours.
