Walks And Walking – Day Walks in Epping Forest

Day Walks in Epping Forest

These are challenging day walks in Epping Forest and typically over 10 miles. A really long walk means you can truly immerse yourself in these ancient woodlands and try some of the lesser known walking routes. You can also explore some of the real hidden treasures found in Epping Forest. Always be fully prepared for good long walks and long distance walking routes by taking plenty of fluids, refreshments and plenty of plasters just in case. I have highlighted my favourite day walks in Epping Forest in bold below, both great walks with plenty of sightings of the Epping Forest Fallow Deer.

Copped Hall Walk
A great 10 mile circular walk from Loughton to Copped Hall House, using some of the most popular walking routes in Epping Forest.

Loughton Walk
A solid 10 mile circular walk from Loughton to Jack’s Hill and Copped Hall House following well-known Epping Forest walking routes.

Abridge Walk
An easy 11 mile circular walk from Hainault Forest Country Park to Abridge and back following popular Essex walking routes in Epping Forest.

Queen Boudicca Walk
An epic 12 mile circular walk, and one of my Epping Forest favourite walking routes, from Epping Town to Ambresbury Banks and the Queen Boudicca Obelisk with plenty of sightings of the Epping Forest Fallow Deer at Copped Hall.

Theydon Bois Walk
A solid 13 mile circular Epping Forest walk from Theydon Bois following The Essex Way walking routes to the Roman Road and Gernon Bushes Nature Reserve.

Epping Forest District Walk
An easy 14 miles circular walk from Epping Station to Birching Coppice, North Weald Bassett, Hastingwood and back via Thornwood. This is another of my favourite Epping Forest walking routes.

The Forest Way Walk
The Forest Way is a 25 mile long distance linear walk along the walking routes, footpaths and green lanes of Epping Forest and Hatfield Forest.

I have taken quite a few photographs of Fallow Deer in Epping Forest but this one was taken by Iain West, you can find his website here.
