Around Symonds Yat Rock there are marked trails to guide you around the forest and along the River Wye.

In the nearby cliffs are nesting places for Peregrine Falcons – the best time to see the birds is while they hunt and raise their young from April to August.

The cliff top at Symonds Yat Rock provided a good vantage point for its Iron age inhabitants, who built a fort here 2,500 years ago. The site is now a scheduled ancient monument. Ongoing tree and vegetation management is designed to minimise damage to the old hillfort defences.
