Swinley Forest

Go walking

Swinley Forest is a lovely place to explore on foot, and we encourage walkers and dog walkers to come and use The Look Out as a base for exploring.


Dogs are welcome to join you on your walk, but please keep them on leads while walking through the picnic area. Only assistance dogs are allowed into the building. 


The Look Out reception sells a map of the forest with three planned routes marked on it. The walks on our map range from 1.2 miles to 5.2 miles long, and take in the beautiful trees, plantations and history of the forest. The maps cost £1 for a paper copy, or £1.50 for a laminated copy.
