Chevin Forest Park is a wooded escarpment overlooking the market town of Otley with magnificent views of the Wharfe Valley. Massive rock outcrops dominate the park which rises steeply to a height of 280m above sea level at its highest point.

The whole park was designated as a local nature reserve in 1989 in recognition of its fantastic wealth of wildlife. Parts of the Chevin have been classified as access land.

The reserve comprises 700 acres of woodland and crags and Chevin Forest Park successfully achieved the Green Flag Award in 2010/11 and 2011/12.
