Croglinhurst Wood known locally as Kitscar Wood lies on a very steep-sided exposed slope of a valley of the River Lickle. The wood with its rocky crags and fairly sparse ground flora is heavily browsed by deer but ferns are prominent and varied. Long-distance walkers seem to be the main users of the public footpath along the southern boundary. This leads to Peggy Steps and the Cuckoo Stone and on to the next valley on longer routes in to the Lake District National Park
