Is this informal or unnatural? Thanks! 彼らは森を歩き回った.

It is correct. And whether natural or not depends on your definition. "彼らは森を歩き回った." It is to me a translation Japanese. You can expect to see it in Japanese translation of western novels, or Japanese novels much influenced by western ones. 彼ら is a typical translation Japanese, and I personally would not use it in everyday life. In this point of view, it is not natural.

I think it sounds very natural. Just to be clear, you meant 'They walked in the forest.', right?
