Outdoor Activities

Clash Wood Path (Walk 9)

Please be aware of tree felling taking place next to parts of the woodland paths on this circuit.  Take extra care when passing forest machinery and timber lorries and dogs to be kept under close control or on a short lead.  This work is due to be completed by the end of August 2018, all paths will remain open during this period.

Take the forest road from the car park, continuing uphill, ignoring the first turning to your right. As the track climbs higher there are pleasing views looking back over farmland and across to the Ladder hills, and ravens can often be spotted soaring high overhead.

At the second junction turn right onto the track following the forest road, which loops around the periphery of the plantation. The trees vary in size throughout the plantation, where the forest has been felled and replanted as part of the ongoing programme of forestry management on the estate. As you rejoin the track at the first junction overlooking Easter Corrie farmhouse turn left and return back down the track to the car park.
