Dalby Forest is situated 12 miles south of Whitby
and is a beautifully managed woodland area with a host of activities for all the family. The nine mile forest drive is just the start; there is an excellent Visitor Centre, endless walks, an orienteering course, graded mountain bike routes and a "Go Ape" high wire forest adventure trail. In the summer there is a programme of pop concerts featuring top groups. Full details of all activities are available on The Forestry Commission website.

To see details of the mountain bike trails in the forest just follow the link. Bikes are available for hire to suit all ages from the Bike Barn shop at the visitor centre.

Now watch this super video and see just how much fun you can have in this wonderful natural playground:
