Just because it has been snowing there is no excuse for not going out on the mountain bikes. Even though the puddles were frozen and the tyres sometimes broke through the surface that was also no excuse for not being out there enjoying the challenge....More
There are many paths you can take in Epping Forest for a peaceful walk and little cafes dotted around such as the Butlers retreat, Holly Trail cafe and the King’s Oak Cafe near the Epping Forest visitor centre. Take a nap with you and chose...More
We love the fact that we have this right on our door step. We especially love visiting Connaught Water. The parking isn’t very big but people just park on the side of the road. Its beautiful there and with clear paths its easy to navigate...More
My friends and I took a long and lazy walk through the forest. Which contains some of the most ancient trees in England. When you are fully submerged in the forest it’s hard to comprehend how close you are to London.
The area is gorgeous....More
Get back to nature and loose yourself in this ancient wood......well we kind of did and it was such fun. Starting off at first light, it took a wee while to get to where we wanted to be as the signposting is not the best...More
Was staying nearby so decided to go for a walk in the autumn sunshine in the forest.
Plenty of flora and fauna to see along with wildlife which was nice to see.
There’s plenty of routes to walk or just explore and create your own...More

I'm not in my 20's , so I'm not sure. I used to walk in the forest alone from about 12years old. Some dogs worry me when they are off the lead, I don't have a dog. I've never been scared of another human in the forest. I used to roam around as a child after school, while waiting to go to my dancing lesson, which was an hour later. My son's used to play together in the forest, one day they hid their cricket gear under a bush, when they returned after a few hours , the bat, ball and stumps had been stollen. I've had my car window broken, and a purse I stupidly left in the car stollen. There are thieves it seems and fly tippers that use the forest.As with anywhere in the UK, we have to look. Don't walk using a mobile (no signal in a lot of the forest anyway), don't jog with earphones, have your wits about you.There are horse riders, walkers, bike riders, dog walkers, parents with children all using the forest, lots of people around , on the main paths. Enjoy.
