The walk explores the ancient Forest of Dean. It takes the walker through mixed woods as well as evergreens. There are usually deer about as well as other forest birds and animals.

The paths are all good and usually dry. Mallards Pike Lakes are home to many water birds including mandarin duck, which nest in the area. Autumn supplies lovely colours, as well as shelter from rain!! There is nothing nicer than walking in the leaves and collecting sweet chestnuts, which do very well in the area.

The Mallard Pike car park isn't cheap and can get very full and noisy. A better option is to park by the old railway remains at Cinderford, plenty of space, quite safe and free. Also this makes Mallard Pike a perfect almost half way spot for lunch complete with picnic benches etc.
