A walk through new woodlands that links two of the best family attractions in The National Forest.
This 11-mile walk passes through former coal mines that have been transformed into woodlands, and are now a haven for wildlife.
It can also be done as two shorter loops of six and seven miles, if you are looking for something a bit less challenging.
Start at Conkers Waterside Moira, Swadlincote Derbyshire DE12 6BA
The circular 4.5 mile CONKERS Circuit is part of the Heart of the National Forest Foundation's vision for a 1,000 acre woodland park being created around CONKERS, the family attraction at the heart of The National Forest.
An area of transformation, where the collieries of the past have become the woodlands of the future.
