Leigh Woods National Nature Reserve Reviews & Ratings
Lovely place for dog walking. Puppy loves running, jumping around all the logs and woods. Plenty of sticks for dog to pick up. Good walking shoes are recommended as it could be a little muddy. This place is popular for mountain biking, weekend could be very busy. There are maps for you to choose the route you're comfortable with and there will be colour coded arrow sign all the way through.
Great for a bit of peace & quiet & so close to the city. Dogs love it here especially running through the fallen leaves & I am happy for them to be off the lead,. Car parking fine especially earlier in the day as gets pretty busy at weekends, cyclists not always terribly aware of animals running free so if going at the weekend go earlier in the day. Good views over Avon Gorge & Stokeleigh Camp is not to be missed - a wonderful 2000 year old iron age fort. Lots of ancient trees, lovely spring wild flowers. My only gripes are the poor trail markers (too few & far between) & failure of some dog owners to pick up their dogs' poo left on main paths & others to take their rubbish home with them. There are no rubbish bins or toilets at all. Wellies recommended in wet weather.
Great place for walking , cycling. Clear fresh air and amazing views. You can buy hot and cold drinks.
whilst this was good and informative, I feel It wasn't suitable for children under the ages of 2 and the groups should of been smaller.
Nice walk quite busy but big enough to get to a quiet spot if you keep walking
