Last time I visited the drive into the forest was free and is now chargeable with alterations to the roadway and entrance. Still worth a trip to visit

We were blessed with perfect weather and we had a great time. Would love to go again and explore the trails. Go Ape! was really fun - while it was difficult the first time around it was much easier the second time and by the third time I was breezing across. We did Go Ape Junior this time, might try...

A stunning place to explore and beautifully kept by those working for the forestry commission. What is a shame is the outsourced catering offering which is awful, expensive and service is slow by untrained staff. Go Ape and the forest trails for bikes or walks are amazing. Just remember take to take your own picnic.

Great for cycling either on the road or off road, off road is great as no traffic which is brill. Had to get off a few times and let the fitter ones through. Got round the track so I didn't do too bad. I think the eight pound is about eight per car to get in when you think you... More

Great place and great walksas well as great cycling routes. The only downside to this place is the parking or rather the lack of respect some people pay when it comes to parking their cars we had awful issues getting out as some people decided to park on the side of the verge making it very difficult for cars to...

Amazing day out at Dalby Forest. Walking through the forest and by the stream on a glorious sunny day is all you need. The best days out are these days, where you can take your time and just enjoy the sights and surroundings !

Dalby forest is an incredible day out, there is something for all the family and you can easily stay there all day. There are multiple activities you can choose from, for all ages and abilities, including walking, cycling, goape, Segways, play area, activity centre. The only thing that lets Dalby down is the cafe. Available for customers is over priced,... More
