We spent a day walking the forest and it was lovely. The trails are clearly marked and the footing is good. You can do a leisurely walk or kick it up a bit by doing the hills.

Our walk began at Ludlow Castle and took us up and through fields and into Mortimer Forest. Near the castle and river beautiful beech and Yew trees can be seen. Up through meadows we passed conifers and more beech... a fabulous afternoon walk.

Go here every time we come to stay and the dogs love it. Stopped at the top for a brew and look at views

Well signposted paths of various lengths. Fairly good underfoot even after all the rain. Can download leaflet from Internet.

Yo the south of the city and many access points, take a map. Higher land rather than hilly and not by any means all wooded. Quiet day but hardly saw a soul or another dog up there and did not find any fossils, On a...More

How lucky I am to have this on my doorstep. I can see the peak of the forest (High Vinnals) from the house in Ludlow and through the year it changes but looks best through autumn and winter, particularly when shrouded in mists or sprinkled...More

An expansive wilderness south west of Ludlow with many access points, the forest is well known for its geology and with a little research you can locate accessible areas to search for fossils.
