Epping Forest – Way Marked Trails in Epping Forest has plenty of beautiful scenic attractions, walks, trails, outdoor activities, things to see, places to eat and places to stay. The City of London, who manage the Epping Forest estate, have been working with the Heritage Lottery Fund provided by the National Lottery to create a series of Way Marked Trails in Epping Forest.
Following the distinctive ‘green arrows’ the aim is to make walking in Epping Forest more inviting and accessible for walkers of all abilities, families with children or seniors, and anyone else looking to explore this magical ancient royal hunting woodland forest.
I have completed all of the Way Marked Trails in Epping Forest with the exception of the Beech Trail, which I will do at some stage and then re-edit this article to include the full descriptive walking route, photographs and map.
