The woodland here is criss-crossed with wide forest roads, so it’s easy to find a circuit that’s just the right length for a walk, cycle or horse ride. You can walk or ride out direct from Lennoxtown, or follow the bridleway that links the forest with nearby Torrance.
Catch glimpses between the trees of long views down to Glasgow or up to the Campsie Fells as you go. Listen out for conifer-loving crossbills fluttering in the canopy overhead and spot roe deer between the trees.
There are places to eat, drink and shop in Lennoxtown. You can find public toilets (small charge), refreshments and bike hire at nearby Clachan of Campsie.
From the centre of Lennoxtown village, turn south onto Station Road (beside Campsie Memorial Hall) and follow this winding road for about 1 ¾ miles. You will see a small parking area on your right, just before the radio mast.
