Whinlatter is a great place for walking with many miles of gravel roads, paths and tracks to explore. Each junction is marked with a numbered post which is shown on the Forest guide map making it easy to create your own route. There are also 2 childrens trails, the Squirrel Scurry and the Tracks Trail, which help children explore the forest and learn more about its wildlife. Maps are available from the Visitor Centre and shop.
