Guisborough Forest is the gateway to the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park and is a haven for walkers, cyclists, families and wildlife-lovers. A blend of walkways, cycle trails, bridleways and orienteering trails through the lush green woodland make Guisborough Forest one of the most popular visitor destinations in the Tees Valley. Young visitors can enjoy the play area or pond, as well as the trim trail and sculpture trail, and a variety of picnic spots make Guisborough Forest a perfect place for everyone. Onsite facilities include a woodland centre, providing a base for the site ranger and Forestry Commision staff, as well as two play areas, car parking, a café and a gift shop.
Guisborough Forest has an active Friends group, which has renovated an old railway carriage by turning it into a bookable venue for meetings, parties and events. Guisborough Forest and Walkway is run in partnership with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, in addition to Forestry England, with help from the North York Moors National Park Authority and the Friends of Guisborough Forest and Walkway.
Flatts Lane Woodland Country Park has something for everyone and is an ideal starting point for a visit to the beautiful Eston hills or to take in the vista across the Tees Valley’s most loved beauty spot, Roseberry Topping. Located to the western edge of the borough, Flatts Lane Woodland Country Park offers walking and cycling trails, an abundance of wildlife, play area, green open spaces and a café and visitors’ centre.
The park has an active Friends group, which works alongside volunteers and the site ranger to deliver new projects on site, a variety of events, and to care for the area. There is also an active park run, developed by Redcar & Cleveland Council, Friends of Flatts Lane and New Marske Harriers.
