Venue type: Outdoor

Haugh Woods Butterfly Trails are 2 trails through the ancient Haugh Woods, that have been set up by the Forestry Commission and Butterfly Conservation to allow everyone to enjoy the numerous butterflies that live there.
The woodland covers nearly 350 hectares (850 acres), and is a nationally important site for butterflies and moths, with over 600 species living there! Both trails have an easy grade, the north is 1.5miles (2.4km) long and marked by red arrows, the South is 2 miles (3.21km) long and marked by green arrows. There are a number of information boards along the trails, which describe some of the species that may be seen.

The trails are mainly made up of hard forest tracks, with gentle slopes, which should make easy going for you and the kids, even if you have a pushchair.
This is a wonderful place to visit with the kids, especially on a sunny day when you can bring a picnic to enjoy as you look out for species such as the Wood White, Speckled White, and various types of Fritillary butterflies. The woodland is close to Broadmoor Common Nature Reserve, which is another good spot for butterflies, plus it has some unusual birds.
