Car Parking: Plenty of free car parking at Green Road Entrance
Amenities: Cafe, Toilets and Playground at Green Road Entrance
Starting from the main bottom car park there is a playground and the lovely Three Cottages Cafe. From the car park, there is a range of extensive walks for various abilities.
You can follow the beck (opportunities to paddle) to the waterfall and back, or turning left up into the hollies, or venturing right into the woods where you can stumble across fairy doors hidden within the trees. There is also a rope swing in the cavern which has some old ruins of houses.
Further along into these woods you will come across The Myrtle Tavern pub with a great children’s play area and a good beer garden. Also over the lane there is a perimeter walk around the housing estate which can lead into the woods if you choose and another playground along the way.
The Meanwood Valley Trail runs from Woodhouse Moor to Golden Acre Park
The 7 mile linear walk is an excellent way to explore The Meanwood Valley Local Nature Reserve which runs from Meanwood into the more rural countryside around Adel and Alwoodley. Download the Trail Map HERE
