Close to Cropton Forest which has a wide range of visitor facilities this smaller but still significant wood is an oasis for those seeking somewhere quieter. There are archaeological remains some of which are medieval within the wood although there are some steep climbs to find them. The wood is well used by local people and is suitable for those visitors who like a bit of an adventure. The views from the top make the effort of getting there worthwhile.
