If you go down to the woods today you’re sure to have an adventure, as well as a few surprises along the way! With 3,500 acres of woodland to discover, Haldon Forest Park is home to tonnes of outdoor fun.
Begin by taking to the trees on the Go Ape Treetop Adventure course. Kids can spend hours zooming down zip wires and swinging through the branches. From there drop back down to earth and explore the surrounding area by bike, on horseback, or even on segway trail tours!
As you delve deep into the woods you may come across a familiar face on the Gruffalo Spotters trail. Download the Spotter app and play detective by following clues and using your trusty evidence kit. Much loved characters will come to life as you hit marker posts and see Fox, Owl, Snake, Mouse - and of course the titular Gruffalo - appear right before your eyes!
Seasonal changes mark the introduction of great new activities. During the summer months enjoy the Butterfly Trail then as winter closes in, get cosy with campfires and the shadow puppet theatre.
