Forest Way Trail

There is a lovely playground in the village of Hartfield - just ¼ mile from the Trail.

The Forest Way is the perfect place for a bike ride with the family. It runs along an old railway line from East Grinstead to Groombridge (approx. 10 miles).

* Cyclists and wheelchair users (wide, flat, surfaced path)

* Beautiful countryside

* Birdwatching. A variety of species can be spotted along the route

* Abundant wildflowers and butterflies in spring and summer

Station Rd, Forest Row, RH18 5DN


Free parking



5.6 km (3.5 miles) each way


All day, every day

Forest Row to Hartfield (and back again!)

This is a great place for young children to learn to cycle in a traffic-free environment and also provides easy access for wheelchair users. 

To find the start of the trail, turn left out of the car park and walk towards the end of the road passing Mid Sussex timber (on your right). At the end of the road turn right and walk down past the fire station, the start of the trail is 50m past the fire station. 

The car park is free - spaces are marked: 3, 6 or 9 hours, depending on which row you pick.

Whilst you could also undertake the trail on foot (with or without a canine friend), the flat route is definitely more interesting on wheels.​

Extension: Feeling energetic? Continue on the Forest Way to Groombridge (additional 4 miles). Remember to save some energy for the return journey!
