Chevin Forest Park

The Chevin is a great place for visitors to do lots of different activities and is open all year round with 5 free car parks. To help you find out whatís best for you we have divided this section up into some of these different activities. Please be aware that The Chevin is a working estate so you may see vehicles including timber-extraction lorries using some of the tracks. Self-guided Walks The Chevin is a big place and there is a good network of paths to make your own circular walk, but if you want to follow a themed trail there is a Geology Trail, Heritage Time Trail and a route for Tree Spotters. Bikes & Horses There is an extensive bridleway network on the eastern parts of The Chevin that caters for a range of abilities. Orienteering and Geocaching Two orienteering courses and a number of geocache sites are waiting to be discovered. Climbing & Bouldering There are many fantastic crags for climbing and boulders for bouldering. Mobility Scooters & Wheelchairs The Chevin gets its name from an old English word meaning ìRidgeî so much of the land is steeply sloping ñ but there are some very good level paths if you know where to look. Surprise View If you do not want to walk very far this is possibly the best panoramic view in Yorkshire.
