Why you should do this walk…
A 3 mile walk following a figure of eight route through Twigmoor Woods in North Lincolnshire. Twigmoor is 130 acres of native woodland and introduced shrubs, conifers and ornamental species which creates a rich and varied habitat for wildlife. The woods are owned by the Scawby Estate with public access allowed in certain parts, giving nearly 3 miles of paths open to the public. There are extensive areas of rhododendrons (which give a stunning display of blooms in late spring) and also a number of large lakes.
Dogs are welcome as long as they are under control at all times. The tracks are simple woodland paths which will be very muddy after wet weather and there are also exposed tree roots throughout to watch out for. There are no stiles or gates. The walk is relatively flat, with just a short steep slope up and down near the start of the walk.
