Trail description

At points along the trail you can find information boards giving interesting facts about the natural diversity along the walk. A small hide at the end of the Nature trail (brown) offers the chance for visitors to observe forest wildlife. You may get a glimpse of one of the four types of deer that live in the forest or countless varieities of birds and butterflies. 

A map showing the walking trails around High Lodge is available from the Forest Centre. You can also view a printable version of the map online. Why not print off a copy before you visit?
