Have had some lovely dog walks at Adel woods. Been going here for years with all my dogs. Lots of people do the same but it never seems crowded. Its a mixed woodland with a small moorland.
The sun shining through the leaves make dappled patterns on the soft forest floor.
There are many paths to choose from and is a great place for orienteering. You can ride your mountain bike through here and get a really good workout. There’s plenty of birds and wildlife and its so lovely and peaceful.
Can be very muddy at times, particularly when the bikers have been through.
Adel Woods is part of the Meanwood Valley Trail. Click here for a leaflet of the trail.
