Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The forest is a lovely place to walk, with dogs or children. Great on bikes too. Connaught Waters is lovely.

Amazing space and green to walk the dog. Some amazing views and a pond or lake parking is not free anymore that’s a downer

Not far out of town, you can even come on the tube. Interesting history and connections Epstein, T E Lawrence and lots more. Good selection of pubs around. Pleasant woodland, open areas and some wildlife. Fairly well kept. Enjoyable time.

It’s a properly huge space Epping Forest, fantastic tree-lined walking paths are everywhere, in fact it’s possible to lose your bearings quite easily, but as long as you listen out for road noise, you can pretty much work out where you are as a newbie (or check Googlemaps haha). There’s a bit of hill but it’s mainly flat, would be great for a run too.

I’ve lived in Chingford a few years now and I believe we take Epping forest for granted, it’s right on our doorstep and we never take the time to enjoy it the air is fresh there are some breathtaking views and a multitude of wild life. While worth an hour or two you’ll be glad you did we are

Epping Forest is a beautiful place and a wonderful survival. It has enough variety to provide interesting walking. The visitor centres have trails and are very interesting in themselves.

No better place to go on an adventure with small children for free. To mention all the places you can go in Epping Forest would take to long. Just go on your adventure and see what you can find.
A good place to start would be to go to the Queen Elizabeth hunting lodge have a look around then work your way into the forest. And on a Sunny day think about taking a picnic.

There’s a wilderness on London’s doorstep.
The easier parts to access are just an introduction as to what she holds. Delve deeper and find solitude and the deer.

The woods are large and we did six miles easily. You might want to get a map or a guide before going in deep into a world of trees. Do some research and enjoy. Or look up local ramblers groups like Havering and East London, West Essex, Redbridge etc to see if they are going there on their programmes of walks.
