The Dean Plantation is a Forestry Commission managed site located on the outskirts of Crossford.
This a great woodland with a good mix of conifers and broadleaved trees and is ideal for kids who like to explore.
The route is easy going but does feature some areas of unstable ground and very steep slopes so it is not suitable for every walker. You can learn more about the forest by visiting http://scotland.forestry.gov.uk/visit/dean-plantation
The route begins and ends at the small car park at the entrance. The car park can only take 3-4 cars and is popular with dog walkers so choose your time well when planning your visit.
The route takes your in a circuit around the whole forest and is a nice stroll no matter the weather conditions.
Route shared with Walk Fife by Jenny.
