Situated just 15 minutes from Exeter, Haldon Forest Park has all you need for a great day out. There are a range of walking and cycling trails to suit all abilities, which help you to explore the forest. There is also a cycle skills area and pump loop to help cyclists improve their technique.
Haldon is home to the Ridge Café, which serves a range of fresh, locally sourced food and drinks. There are also lots of picnic tables dotted around for people that want to bring their own food.
There is also a cycle hire centre on site for those who can’t bring their own bikes and Go Segway too for those who want to explore the forest in a slightly different way! Go Ape is also at Haldon for those who like their excitement off the ground!
For anyone who has difficulty walking there is an all-terrain mobility scooter for hire – this needs to be booked in advance by calling 01392 834251.
Other activities such as archery and Nordic walking are also available and people are advised to visit the website to find out more about these. Haldon is also great for orienteering and packs are available from the Rangers office for a small charge but can also be downloaded free from orienteeringdevon.org.uk.
There is a charge to park at Haldon but otherwise the forest is free to explore. Money raised from car parking goes directly back in the maintenance and improvement of the park. Regular visitors can save money by purchasing a Discovery Pass for £30 which gives free parking for a whole year as well as a range of other benefits. Details can be found at forestry.gov.uk/pass
Situated a short distance away from the main Haldon gateway is Mamhead where an all ability walking trail can be found. There is a car park at Mamhead and its free to park there but there are no toilets or any other facilities.
