These forests were very close and would have been perfect for dog walking but there had been cases of SCI for dogs and warning signs at all entrances, so sadly we were unable to walk there.

There are some signed 'trails' and many unsigned tracks suitable for people and dogs.

I've gone for many walks through the forest from Rendlesham to the woodland walk shown in the picture. Dogs must be watched in the summer as adders and deer about. Fun for bird watching too.

Lovely walk along the UFO trail, shame that ignorant people felt that they had to deface the model UFO, the leaflet explained the happenings along the way and the rest is left your imagination.

Found by accident and a real find! The Centre has an information kiosk and mobile café. The forest is well maintained and there are marked trails to follow including the UFO trail. There are 3 outdoor adventure play areas also.
