The Trailblazers operate from Hamsterley Forest which lies between Weardale and Teesdale.

Follow the signs to Hamsterley Forest from the A68 at Witton-le-Wear, 5 miles north of West Auckland. Turn right in Hamsterley village following the brown tourist signs, turn left in hamlet of Bedburn to enter the forest and access the forest drive (Toll fee applies). The visitor centre is located at the bottom of the hill on the right.
