Trail description

This all-ability route meanders its way through larches and oaks and past the curly whirly tree sculpture.

To make your walk more interesting and enjoyable we have changing information on 16 boards around the trail, reflecting the forest and its wildlife in different seasons.

Came to see the Gruffalo last year! Was an amazing well routed walk. We are coming again tomorrow!

To the lady complaining about the dog poo bins.... would she rather have dog poo littered all over the trails? Or perhaps maybe a big mound of those responsible dog owners who have collected their dog poo to put it in a big overflowing pile of used nappy sacks? OR a bin that hides, conceals and reduces the smell.... I think I would rather the latter. Thanks!

Is the sleeping gruffalo still found on this trail?

Debs, 30/Dec/2015

Yes, our sleepy Gruffalo is still here at Wyre and is part of The Stickman Trail for 2016. We hope you enjoy your visit and look out for a new Gruffalo character sculpture coming this spring!
