    Fast flowing and fun!

    Swinley Forest is an area of the Windsor Estate between Bracknell and Bagshot to the west of the A322. Owned and managed by The Crown Estate, it comprises 1000 hectares of mainly Scots Pine woodland.

    Three cycle trails in line with the International Mountain Bike Association industry standards are available for you to enjoy in Swinley Forest. The green, blue and red cycle routes all begin from The Look Out Discovery Centre and provide a range of challenges for families cycling for fun to highly skilled riders.

    Parking:
    Car Parking is available on site (See 'View Map' above), a parking ticket is required for the duration of your stay, the ticket machines accept cash and debit/credit cards.

    Additional info:
    There is a cafe on site located in The Look Out Discovery Centre, also there is bike hire and repairs at the Swinley Bike Hub, which is also on site.
    Both the car park and cafe get very busy at peak times, especially in the summer/autumn months, so it's advisable to get there early for easier parking.
    There are plenty of woods explore and The Look Out Discovery Centre means this can also be a family day out even if Mum and kids aren't in to cycling.
