Starting at the Dalby Courtyard near the Visitor Centre, the Ellerburn Trail is a multi-user pathway for disabled cyclists, walkers, and wheelchair users as well as being a safe and accessible route for children learning to ride a bike and parents with pushchairs. The trail runs alongside Ellerburn Beck.
A short detour takes you to Ellerburn Pond and Bird Hide past the entrance to the bat hibernaculum (an artificial cave where bats can spend the winter).
On the short route you will find our giant wooden gruffalo sculpture!
What do other visitors say?
There really should be some sort of discount for locals who just want to walk , I used to buy an annual pass but the rate is now so inflated, too dear. As with most things around here,
Everything is geared for tourists , us residents just have to put up with inflated prices and horrific traffic problems caused by tourist attractions such as yours, flamingo land etc. !
Forestry Commission Response
Hello, thank you for your comments. As you have mentioned, visitors can buy an annual pass called a Discovery Pass for £42 a year. The network of footpaths and bridleways connect Dalby to the local area and there is no admission charge for walking or cycling into the forest.
