Explore your community woodland

The Forest of Marston Vale is 61 square miles, and surrounded by the stunning countryside of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire - that's a lot to explore! We put together some of our favourite routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders as part of the Paths 4 Communities project (funded by the EU through Natural England)

The Forest obviously has loads of amazing green spaces, including 13 of our own woodlands which are all free to access on foot/bike/horseback, 365 days a year but these routes are all based around the Forest Centre & Millennium Country Park.

Money doesn't grow on trees - donate now

Land is expensive and managing woodlands is expensive. It isn't as simple as putting a tree in the ground and walking away - it costs £20 to plant one tree and look after it for 5 years. Trees don't cost the earth, but they might just save it.
