Spend an afternoon exploring the nooks and crannies of Ramscombe along the 2 mile Red Walk Trail where you will see some majestic Douglas firs, which are some of the tallest trees in England, the tallest is just over 50 metres which is higher than 11 double decker buses.
You will also pass through some Ancient oak woodlands, which look particularly spectuacular in the Autumn.
You may spot some Red and Roe deer through the forest and may also hear the ‘kronk’ of ravens’ overhead. Also keep your eyes peeled for the occasional sparrow hawk.
You will also be rewarded with some wonderful views across the forest. This is ideal for those who enjoy a gentle stroll and there are plenty of resting places along the way.

Would it be too much to ask to put a downloadable map of the route the red walk takes?
