The National Forest Walking Festival takes place during May in National Walking Month. Spring is one of the best times of the year to be outdoors in the National Forest. The drama of spring blossom, the heady scent of bluebells carpeting ancient woodlands, and the chance to see wildlife in abundance, are all wonderful for the mind and soul.

This year there are a record 94 walks to choose from, and we are celebrating the rich and varied heritage of the National Forest. You can take a walk back through time and learn about the rocks beneath our feet, hear stories of stately homes and the families who lived there, and find out how our industrial past shaped the Forest. 

For the latest updates on walks and events in the National Forest and beyond, follow the National Forest Walking Festival Facebook page

We hope you join us in 2024, enjoy the walks, learn a bit about the Forest and feel inspired to go and explore the Forest further. We look forward to welcoming you.
