Trail description

Can you help us solve the mystery of the sickly beech on our Tree Detective Family Activity Trail?

Use your sleuthing skills to discover what's making the beech tree sick along our Tree Detective family activity trail! Examine 10 different suspects, search for clues and give your verdict at the end.

There are also plenty of natural play features along the way in case you get tiered from all that detective work!

As a reward for your super sleuthing, you can pick up a free prize at the Welcome Building.

Collect your Tree Detective family activity map from the Welcome Building and head out on your next adventure.
