Really awesome vast park. From a dog walkers point of view when you first park up its a bit crowded with other dogs and families etc but once you get out the main bit you can go for ages without seeing anyone . Lots of different routes to take and lots of off-lead opportunities but the only problem is there... More

We were staying near by so took the opportunity to visit having heard good reviews from some friends. Free parking so a good start. Superb views. Well marked paths. Lovely woods to explore with the children and scramble over boulders. If you are into a bit of discovery there is some great geology evidence. For sure the are some noises... More

Travelled around with my dad in his car. Very sunny day. Saw a lot of great views. This is my old haunts from 30 years ago. Such a good view on ITV weather today 10.35pm.

The Chevin forest park is a lovely suprise just outside Leeds. It has stunning views all along the park and plenty of different paths criss-crossing the area. While there we saw four different red kites and other birds. The park could have better signs but some research before you go is enough to be well prepared. The only downside is... More

Went here on a whim yesterday after a day out in Otley and the views were amazing, we went off the beaten track a little bit but the wildlife and plantlife were so pretty. I would recommend to any explorer, possibly not for older people on the parts I walked as the hills are nearly vertical at some points! Great... More

The park looks like a pine forest at first, it spans large area at the top of Otley on a hillso you can see some great vistas. We found it easy to get lost in the sense that we wanted to head for that strangely old fashioned pub we'd been to in the past but it was like Brigadoon.......lost, we... More

Lots of lovely walks to be had here, with varying routes; some not for the infirm, (something I learnt to my cost after a knee op!) My favourite is Surprise View, which, as the name would suggest, gives a fantastic view over the lovely friendly market town of Otley, nestled amongst rolling hills, farmland and countryside. It is just a... More

Nice woodland walk, gentle, but with hills if you choose to follow a path with an incline. Shame about the dog poo on some of the paths though, especially on the path near the car park. Irresponsible dog owners. Grrrrr!

If I could have given good I would have done as I have mixed views on the place, no pun intended! The good points? Beautiful scenery, very much out in the nature, huge space to explore. And the bad? Not enough signs so we walked aimlessly getting nowhere, very very hilly and uneven. There's supposed to be 2 pubs and... More

Came here last weekend to get out of the house and go for a stroll. Parked in the less busy quarry car park, where there was plenty of space. We did a circular route round the park, which was relatively gentle most of the way round, although a couple of short steeper climbs in places. It was pretty well signposted... More
