There are many footpaths running through the woodland and a number of these are way marked for you to explore the site. There are 4 short circular walks varying from ¾ mile to 1 ¼ miles. Each one guides you through the ancient part of Pwllycrochan Woods helping you discover for yourself its history and wildlife.
