Two Mile Coppice is on the edge of Weymouth, east of Greenway Road.  From the road you follow a bridleway for approximately 250m which passes under the Weymouth Relief Road. The bridleway has a tarmac surface. There is a gradual but sustained slope. 

The main access is at the south west corner of the wood from the bridleway and is via a kissing gate.  A second entrance on the eastern boundary is a kissing gate leading from the Dorset Wildlife site at Lorton Meadows. Two kissing gate entrances also leads from the meadows on the northern boundary.  Within the wood there is a circular loop path with a natural earth surface. The ground is generally flat except for the land on the west edge of the wood near the new road, which rises suddenly and steeply. The rest of the wood is on low lying wet ground, and consequently sections of the path can be very muddy and boggy following rain, even in summer, particularly the path that runs along the southern edge of the wood parallel to the public bridleway. There are some sections of boardwalk on this route.
