Trail description

The Fir trail is suitable for the more adventurous walker. The trail takes visitors deep into the heart of Thetford Forest Park - a perfect opportunity to explore quieter areas of the forest. For those wanting a longer walk, this trail can be linked to the Beech Trail (pink) creating a walk of over 6 miles.

A map showing the walking trails around High Lodge is available from the Forest Centre. You can also view a printable version of the map online. Why not print off a copy before you visit?
