Genesis Slade is not an accessible area of Forest. Its car parks are uneven, non-paved surfaces and lack disabled bays. The area itself has unmade paths and trails only, with some steep slopes; and the area can be muddy

Opening hours

​Genesis Slade is always open

​Genesis Slade is a broad area of unpollarded beech, oak and hornbeam crossed with streams and spotted with marshy spans which are home to fauna not found anywhere else in the Forest. Toward Theydon Plain at its south-east tip, the woods give way to open areas with stunning wildflowers.
