Well there are some gateposts on the way there but none actually in the wood. Like I say there is no real evidence of people going there. The river is (tavy) is right next to it and unpassable without getting wet and the path does not go through the wood. On top of this you have to jump a couple of barbed wire fences and jump over rock pools next to a very steep river bank. You definietly need walking boots but there is a real satisfaction in getting there. I am going back there now as a matter of fact its definitely worth the uphill cycle.
