The Lodge Pond Trail is a very attactive route which takes you into the heart of the forest.
After taking you past the exciting play structures on the Habitat Trail it then leads you away from the hustle and bustle as it passes through mixed broadleaf woodland and open mature pine forest.
The highlight of the walk however is Lodge Pond. It is believed that Lodge Pond was created as one of a series of fisheries by Medieval monks. They would have used it to breed carp which formed an important part of their diet.
This is an excellent trail for all the family as it offers both the excitement of the play areas and the serenity of the peaceful woodland.
Please be aware that the Lodge Pond Trail follows unsurfaced woodland paths for much of its route and is unsuitable for pushchairs.
