      Consisting of 128 hectares, South Barrule Forest is one of the Island's most popular woodlands for outdoor adventure, leisure activities and is a convenient gateway to neighbouring forests and hill land.

      Popular with walkers, horse riders and families, the forest also features a number of purpose built mountain bike trails and a skills area where riders can hone their riding techniques.

      The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture is indebted to a number of local volunteer groups and organisations who have considerably helped with amenity improvements including trail building, path improvements and conservation projects.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
