The weather was overcast during out one mile journey into the forest. We enjoyed the video before hiking into the forest to gain a perspective on the history of the forest. Of the possible three different walks into the forest from the Visitor's Center the most popular is the hike to the Major Oak (or the Robin Hood Oak as the locals call it). The Oak tree is massive, over 1,000 years old, and is propped up with various cables which do not distract from its overall appearance. Parking during our visit was adjacent to the Visitor Center (and free on the day we visited) but on weekends and holidays it can be crowed in the lots and on the pathways. There is a restaurant and a few gift shops. A great play for families. For a person who is mobility challenged there is a cart which can be rented for a small fee.
