“Wonderland for all seasons!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

Regardless of what time of year you go, the forest is simply stunning! There are many well defined public foot and cycle paths. We visited twice, parked by Cannop Ponds (free of charge) and walked a 7-mile circuit (image attached). This walk takes in part of the Sculpture Trail. Will return!

“Lovely area of outstanding natural beauty!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

If you are an outdoorsy person, or just like to odd walk - this is such a nice place to visit. The only downside we had was that it was during the Gloucestershire flood weekend, so got a bit wet!!

“Excellent Day Out”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Today for the first time we visited the Forest Of Dean . Had a wonderful day at the Forest's sculpture trail. Dog & children very happy . Good way of getting exercise but having fun. No entry fee just needed to pay for carpark ticket. After we had walked for miles we then sat outside & had a coffee from the little cafe . Good park for children . Clean loos . Will be returning in the near future as we now want to discover what the rest of the Forest of Dean has to offer including the steam railway.
