Walk Description

From the Wombwell Wood car park, walk back towards the entrance, and turn left, to follow the hard track to the second car park. Take the path straight ahead to reach the first, smaller lake. Turn left and walk alongside the larger lake.

Follow this track as it moves deeper into the wood. At the first track heading off to the left, turn left and follow this. After a while the track splits – take the left hand fork here.

When you reach the end of this track, turn left, following the main cutting into the wood. After a short while, a footpath becomes clear on the right – take this, and follow it through the trees and out onto a clearing with a junction of paths.

Turn left here, and then next right, to take you back to the opposite side of the car park.
