      Kjarnaskógur er eitt vinsælasta útivistarsvæði Akureyringa, um 800 hektara að stærð. Við upphaf skógræktar á svæðinu um 1950 var landið skóglaust með öllu. Síðan þá hefur verið plantað um 1.5 milljónum plantna og er þar mikil gróðursæld og gott skjól.

      Í skóginum má m.a. finna:
      - Tvö leiksvæði með fjölda leiktækja
      - Blakvöll
      - Yfirbyggða grillaðstöðu sem hentar jafnt einstaklingum sem hópum
      - Stærsta skipulagða gönguskíðasvæði landsins (í skóglendi) með allt að 20 km troðnum brautum, þar af eru 6 km upplýstir. Athugið að hægt er að nálgast upplýsingar um færðgönguskíðasvæðisins í síma (+354) 8784050
      - Fyrstu sérhönnuðu fjallahjólabraut landsins
      - Um 12 km af malarbornum stígum, þar af eru 6 km upplýstir, auk fjölda annarra skógarstíga. Sjá kort af gönguleiðum
      - Snyrtingar og vatnsbrunn

      Svæðið er í eigu Akureyrarbæjar en í umsjá Skógræktarfélags Eyfirðinga.
