The Coed Nercwys Multi-User Trail is designed to be used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The 3km route sweeps around the forest in an exhilarating loop. Along the way there are interpretation boards which provide information on the rich history associated with the forest. Within the forest there is a Bronze Age burial cairn (a scheduled ancient monument), old quarry workings and mine buildings. There are no significant gradients on the trail and it makes for a perfect family ride. Although the tree cover is constant throughout there are some excellent view points where you can gaze out over the Cheshire Plain. Like all forestry trails the route is occasionally closed due to forestry operations.
There are car parks at both the northern and southern end of the forest. The northern car park is the one normally used for the cycle route.
