Guisborough Forest and WalkwayGuisborough Forest and Walkway

A gateway to the North York Moors, Guisborough Forest and Walkway is situated at the northern edge of the National Park. It's a mosaic of thriving habitats, with woodlands, wetlands and grassland, and is home to many different plants and animals.

Onsite facilities include two play areas, a trim trail to challenge you, a sculpture trail, circular waymarked walks and bike trails, and a permanent orienteering course. A dipping platform provides access into the wetland area and there's a regular events programme.

The visitor centre, complete with solar panels and rainwater harvesting, has a café, shop and interpretive displays including a children's area.

The Friends of Guisborough Forest and Walkway have renovated an old railway carriage, turning it into a bookable venue for meetings, parties or events.

Guisborough Forest and Walkway is run in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and Forestry England, with help from the North York Moors National Park Authority, and the Friends of Guisborough Forest and Walkway.
