With a very active 5-year-old, we love to explore our local area by going on adventures! We find woodland walks the perfect place to keep him interested and entertained, allowing us a decent walk as a family without a struggle to keep him going.
Coxley Woods, in rural west Wakefield, is our absolute favourite place for adventuring! There is a little stream for dam building and wading, trees for den constructions and swinging and ducks and horses to see. In the spring, the woods even take on a carpet of bluebells and wild garlic!
When exploring the woods, we love these two circular routes, one of just over 1.5km and a slightly longer version further up the valley of 5km. Many Wakefield parents and carers from my Wakefield Mumbler parenting community enjoy these too!
We hope you have a brilliant day out exploring our favourite Wakefield woodland!
