Haldon Forest Park is made up of 3,500 acres of woodland, just 15 minutes from Exeter. Open 364 days a year, it’s the perfect place to immerse yourself in the great outdoors.

With miles of trails for walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders, there’s something for everyone at Haldon Forest Park.

Enjoy expansive views, exhilarating mountain biking, tree top adventures and orienteering courses. What will you discover?

Explore the forest under your own steam with new running trails. Waymarked tracks guide you through the woodland on your choice of routes from 1km to 10km.

Whether you’re progressing from walking to jogging, or aiming to set a new personal best time, progressive running trails are a refreshing way to boost your fitness. Break free of the gym and enjoy all the physical and mental benefits of outdoor exercise.


Whether you’re looking for an easy-going trail for all abilities, play and adventure for the children or peace and quiet to observe the wildlife, we have a trail for you.
