Seasonal Trail

Bedgebury's Seasonal Trails

Follow our regular seasonal trail around the Pinetum. The trails change with each new season and each one focuses on a new subject that gets you closer to the trees and brings alive the important conservation work that we carry out right in the heart of our outstanding conifer collection.

Bedgebury Winter Trail 2017

Follow our winter trail to find out about some of the Plant Hunters (past and present) associated with our trees at Bedgebury.

The trail starts from the visitor centre and follows surfaced paths. It is flat apart from one uphill slope and a steepish downhill slope. The trail will take about an hour to walk at a leisurely pace. Conditions can vary, so please take care and where appropriate footwear. We recommend that you pick up an accompanying free guide, including map, to enhance the trail.

You might also like to try and find the tree labels which will help you identify them as you walk around. Each label contains details of the Latin, cultivar, and common name, country or area of origin, and the year it was planted in the collection.

The trail follows surfaced paths; some with gentle slopes. There is a steeper uphill slope on one section, and a gentle downward zigzag slope back to the Visitor Centre.
