Walking and running in Epping Forest
Epping Forest has over 284km of paths and untold other trails across its 8000 acres, along with plenty to see and do. Whether you're looking to get out for a quiet walk or more rigorous exercise, we've got you covered.

Trails and routes
Short Walks in Epping Forest and the Official Epping Forest Map
The Forest also has ten waymarked trails to help you get out and about in the Forest. They:
- have signposts, so you can find your way even if you've not walked it before
- are circular, so you can start and end them anywhere along the trail
- start and end conveniently close to parking and stations where possible
Waymarked trails to the Forest from Epping and Loughton Stations
We are grateful to Epping Forest Heritage Trust, Transport for London and the local councils to now provide a sign at Epping and Loughton Stations welcoming visitors to Epping Forest. Each sign is followed by a series of way markers which lead visitors into Epping Forest. This project was generously funded by the City Bridge Foundation.
