Works to develop Glentress and deliver the Masterplan are well under way. Our trail builder, ‘On Track’ is busy on the new taster trails, adding new routes to the Red, Blue...
¾ mile of wide, uneven gravel paths lead up a steep hill through ancient woodland and grassland. The best panorama in the area awaits, with views over the Kilpatrick Hills and Ben Lomond.
There are shops, places to eat and public toilets in Howwood and Lochwinnoch.
There is no charge to park at this woodland. Please park with care and consideration, and do not block pedestrian and vehicles access points.
Access to the wood is through the gate near the junction of Hill Road, Hillfoot Drive and Carsewood Avenue in Howwood.
From the east end of Main Street in Howwood, take the right fork onto Midton Road, then the first right onto Bowfield Road (the B776, signposted for Caldwell). From Bowfield Road, take the first left onto Hill Road. There is plenty of on-street parking in the area.
PA9 1BU is the nearest postcode.
The forest is less than ¼ mile from the centre of Howwood, which has a train station and a good bus service. Plan your journey at Traveline Scotland.
