Wind down and get active in the green woods of Countesswells – natural healthy fun in Aberdeen's back garden!
Different woodland types and a variety of short and long trails make this a very popular forest for all ages. These attractive woods were once part of the Countesswells estate and are well-established, with huge conifers creating a cathedral-like atmosphere near the car park and colourful beech, larch and pine elsewhere.
The forest trails are designed for cyclists and walkers and give gentle views over Aberdeenshire farmland and towards the city of Aberdeen. They can be combined into a memorable circular route passing through the length of the forest.
