WALK from Hartwell (Bus 33 Bus Stop)
This is the 20 minute walk from Hartwell to the Forest Cafe and information point.
When you get the 33 Bus to Piddington, ask for Salcey Avenue. Buses from Milton Keynes and Northampton both turn here to go back to the centre of Hartwell.
From Salcey Avenue, walk up Forest Road (slightly uphill) for about five minutes. You will walk over the M1 road bridge. After another minute you will reach the edge of the forest. Keep a watch out for a track going off to the left of the Forest Road. This track goes through Hartwell Clear Copse. Turn left on to the track. After two minutes the track will turn to the right. Carry on for another six to eight minutes and you will come to the Quinton Road.
Cross the road and continue on the main track opposite.
Take the first path to the right. You will see a Car Park on the right. Carry on walking for another few minutes and you will see the Cafe and the Information Point to your left.
At the side of the Information Point there is a hopper which should contain copies of a large map of the forest, which shows all the different walks.
