Leave No Trace

Plan ahead and prepare

  • Before you go check, where possible, if access is allowed and your activity is permitted in the area you wish to visit. You can do this by visiting the other pages on this site which provide a huge amount of information on our forests.

  • Respect any signs, regulations and special instructions for the area that you wish to visit. Permits are needed for activities such as camping, mountain biking (outside designated areas) horse riding etc. on our lands. Contact local district offices to obtain a permit.

  • Where possible travel by public transport or share cars; consider the availability of parking.

  • Ensure you have the skills and equipment needed for your activity and to cope with emergencies that could arise. Some of our trails will bring users into remote locations where outdoor skills, such as map reading, are essential

  • Check the weather forecast and always be prepared for changing weather conditions.

  • For environmental and safety reasons, and to minimise your impact on other users, keep group numbers to less than 8, if possible.
