Hicks Lodge

In the heart of the National Forest, Hicks Lodge, features gorgeous views and exciting trails for you to enjoy on foot or by cycle.

Weekend Escapes

A great day out for the budding cyclist, from tearaway toddlers to young teens perfecting their skills, there’s a range of trails for beginner to intermediate appetites plus, you can even hire bikes here. A former coal mining site, Hicks Lodge has been totally transformed by new plantings and exciting trails for you to enjoy.

Little ones will love to follow the Gruffalo Spotters trail. Spot the signs and see what creatures you can find in the deep dark wood.

Visit the lakeside bird hide where you can soak in the beautiful scenery and spot some unique wildlife, such as the migratory sand martins. There are also walking and horse riding paths to explore the forest, a play area plus, a café where you can refuel before setting off on more adventures.
