A small gate at the northern end of this very attractive wood leads to a steeply-sloping path. This path runs almost to the valley bottom where a meandering stream gives the western boundary a feeling of tranquillity. There is a sometimes-steep circular unsurfaced path with steps and also a narrow footpath which leads to the southern end where there is a squeeze stile in the roadside wall. Car parking is available along Thunderbridge Lane and there is a railway station at nearby Stocksmoor.
