Travelling to Skellingthorpe Old Wood by bike is simple. Just off Sustrans National Cycle Route 64, if coming from the city centre it’s only five miles away and will take around 26 minutes on a traffic-free cycle route.

Cyclists can cycle around the Odin Trail once at the woods or cycle on the newly installed one-mile long tarmac ‘Georgie Twigg Track’ to reach nearby Doddington Hall.



Day out at Old Wood

Old Wood is an ancient woodland that is rich in native oak, lime and hazel. During spring the woodland floor is carpeted with wildflowers including bluebells, orchids and lily-of-the-valley.

A circular cycle track within the wood links to the SUSTRANS National Cycle Network, Route 64, making it a great destination for cyclists.

Old Wood provides a 3.5km network of sandy surfaced tracks, suitable for all-weather use, and a number of more natural unmodified pathways and bridle routes. These tracks are well defined within the wood and are dry enough to make access available throughout the site for most of the year.
