Nice and peaceful woodland, great walk with the dogs with lovely scenery especially now the Autumn colours are kicking in. Lots of places to park in lay-bys on the main road to the forest, each one will give a different walking opportunity. If you're in the area of Thetford then visit The Brecks

We live right next to the forest and spend many hours walking and biking along its paths and routes. From the hidden cross on pilgrams way to the remains of the crashed wwii plane and its memorial. There is plenty to find in the forest.
