Today we visited Otterspool Park, part of the Mersey Forest.
Here are some notes and photos as part of our wider exploration of the whole forest.
We cycled along the waterfront, turning inland at Jericho Lane. We locked the bikes to bike loops opposite Otterspool Adventure and its nice cafe.
A path led all the way to the entrance to the forest and nature reserve.
It’s a linear forest with a well-paved path that passes under a fabulous Victorian rail bridge.
We scrambled up a very steep bank to a high level path.
The photos don’t really do it justice: although small, we felt very immersed in a beautiful forest.
There was a cool tunnel that led through a steep part of the hill.
And some interesting rock formations next to the path.
It was a lovely patch of forest with a big variety of trees, some quite mature. Being in a sort of valley made it very tranquil despite being close to civilisation.
We loved it here and will definitely come back ❤️
