Adel Woods

Between Adel and Alwoodley you will find this picturesque woodland which spans up to 175 acres. Adel Woods appears to be a secret escape of the people of Leeds as it is relatively unknown to the wider city population. If you are a keen walker, make sure to be prepared before heading into these woods as it’s not particularly well signposted! There is a great spot called ‘Eagle Rock’ for those who are into a bit more of an adrenaline rush such as rock climbing. Free parking is available just off Stairfoot Lane (LS16 8DR).
