We travelled to Thetford forest for a day out while staying with friends in Cambridge. We drove from Cambridge putting the following postcode into sat-nav "IP27 0AF". Thought there was something not quite right when the sat-nav mentioned something about restricted roads. When we neared the destination it took us to a road where there was a barrier blocking progress. However there was a small carpark and given we were already within the forest boundary we decided to just park up there and begin our walk. The point of mentioning this is just to highlight that if you use sat-nav and use the Forestry Commission's suggested postcode for the visitor centre you may end up in the same predicament as we did.
However once we began our walk it was all flat and we only added about 1.5-2km onto the walk before we reached the visitor centre. We then did the Fir Trail walk all around the forest which was a flat and level 3km.
