Activity Idea: Forest drives

A Forest Drive will be the preserve of the largest woodland areas only.
As the name suggests, this will entail a permissive well-surfaced route for vehicular traffic for which an entry toll is levied. Clearly such charges cannot be applied to public highways, so opportunities to establish a long drive are likely to be limited. It may be possible to work with neighbours of offer routes through a selection of wooded areas (mixed in with other appealing landscapes), or to offer off-road vehicles access to more challenging conditions.
