Maulden Wood is an attractive mix of semi-natural broadleaf woodland, acidic grassland and conifer plantations and part of the Ampthill Forest covered and looked after by the Forestry Commission.
The Greensand Ridge Trail leads visitors from the lay by on a tour through the wood.
The grasslands in the centre of the wood are managed by the Greensands Trust in partnership with the Forestry Commission, and are designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for the acidic grassland and heathland interest. The northern end of the wood is also an SSSI because of its importance as one of Bedfordshire's largest remnants of ancient woodland.
Take a healthy walk in the fresh air in this beautiful ancient woodland on the Greensand Ridge. Follow the Greensand Ridge Trail or find your own way through the network of rides and woodland tracks. If walking your dog dont forget to take your poop scoop. Use the bins provided or please take it home!
Horses are welcome on the surfaced gravel tracks. There are also special tracks dedicated for horse riding - just follow the horseshoe signs. Cyclists are also welcome on the gravel tracks. Mountain bikers and stunt riders can use the specialist facilities at the nearby Rowney Warren Wood.
