Hyning Scout Wood lies between the villages of Yealand Conyers to the north and Warton to the south. It is approximately 5 miles west of the M6 motorway (J35 Carnforth Lancashire).

This large 21ha (52 acre) wood is rural and mostly made up of semi-natural ancient woodland to the south. lt has some wonderful mature sweet chestnut and beech trees. The wood has formed on the clints and grikes of limestone pavement which dates back to glacial times. Large boulders are scattered throughout the wood - remnants of the glacial passage of ice. Hyning Scout lies within the Arnside & Silverdale Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is also designated as a Biological Heritage Site.

Access to the wood is straight off Hyning Road. There is limited parking to the south at the entrance that leads to a track known as Donkey Lane.
