Trail description

Kids will love the excitement of using the simple map to try and find 12 Gruffalo markers then answer questions in their Gruffalo orienteering leaflet.

This new course will introduce young children to map reading, and encourage them to explore the forest on a trail based on the Gruffalo story.  The route will take children to the Gruffalo sculpture as well as a new Gruffalo Child sculpture.

The 1.2 mile Gruffalo themed orienteering course is great family fun and is pushchair friendly.
