Information about Dalby Forest

With so many different corners to explore, no two visits to Dalby Forest will ever be the same!

Glacial valleys to the south create a unique 'rigg and dale' landscape, while the north of the forest sits on an upland plateau. The landscape offers a variety of different trails - whether you are looking for a gentle stroll, challenging bike ride or active run – all amid breath taking scenery.

Dalby Forest is home to an abundance of internationally important wildlife species and is also a designated Dark Sky Discovery Site, where you can experience the magic of seeing the Milky Way with the naked eye.

Come rain or shine, day or night, you will have a fantastic forest adventure and create lasting memories at any time of the year.
