woodland with neighbouring farmland. Gravel Paths make this walk much more pleasurable in wet weather.


This walk does not cross any roads, the only main road that you'll be relatively near is the one near the car park.
It's worth noting the routes are shared with horse riders and cyclists.

Other Considerations

We always recommend carrying plenty of water for you and your pooch. There is a small stream part way along but it can dry up during the summer months. No toilets available,

Try a refreshing and serene hike on a stable trail through a picturesque woodland.

Explore Wharncliffe, Greno and Wheata woods for a unique nature experience. With winding paths and trails, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re an avid hiker or prefer a leisurely stroll. 

The wide gravel paths are stable and safe even after heavy rain, allowing you to fully immerse in the breathtaking natural views. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of main roads and enjoy the peace and tranquility of these magnificent woods.

Echo loves weaving in an out of the trees, and he absolutely loves water so has to jump in every puddle he sees.

You’ll come to a small bridge, if its flowing its a great rest stop to allow your pups to get wet paws and cool off.
