Bridleway and Permits

There is a bridleway that runs through Moors Valley Country Park and Forest. Normal access rules apply while on this Public Right Of Way, if you wish to deviate from it a permit is required. More information on Public Right of Ways can be found on the website.

Other Users

We encourage all users of the park to be respectful of other groups and where possible to give way to pedestrians. Please be aware that the Moors Valley parkrun follows much of the bridleway route, and therefore horse riders may encounter up to as many as 750 runners between 9am and 10am every Saturday morning. Marshals are positioned along the route to help all users navigate their way around safely.
