Walks for autumn
Discover the best places for seasonal colours
Our running trails provide an opportunity to run on safe, off-road, traffic-free trails in beautiful forest locations.
The trails are waymarked so you can feel confident about following the route and the view is much nicer than in a gym!
Remember that you’ll need footwear and kit to suit the conditions - some sections of the longer trails follow muddy footpaths for which trail shoes are recommended.
In 2011, the Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Running Championships came to North Wales and you can run the official race route on our waymarked trail.

Sometimes we need to close or divert trails whilst we undertake maintenance work or forest operations or for other reasons such as bad weather.
We add details about trail closures and diversions to the relevant woodland or visitor centre web page.
We also put signs about closures and any diversions at the start of each trail.
Please follow all diversion signs and instructions from our staff on site for your own safety.
