Woodland Trail - Troopers Hill Woodland

This marked trail is just under 600m and the complete circuit (including crossing the Field and the top part of the Hill) is around 900m or just over half a mile. There are four carved marker posts (each with their own name) and the trail webpage has information about what you can see at each point. The locations of the waymarkers are shown on the map in our 'General Information & Wildlife' site leaflets.

There is also a version of the web page designed for use on mobiles which allows you to look at the information as you go round.

The Woodland Trail was created and installed as part of our Lottery Funded Stepping Forward Improving Access Project in 2012.

Fun Learning Trails - Hill & Woodland

Three short trails to follow around Troopers Hill - explore the Hill and learn more about the wildlife that lives there.

The trails make wonderful short walks for visitors of all ages begining near the top of the Hill using symbols based on artwork drawn by children from Summerhill Academy.

Families, schools or youth groups can download 'Challenge Sheets' with maps and other information from the website. There are three different challenges depending on age and the amount of challenge you are seeking.

There is a video on the website that explains how the challenges work.

The Fun Learning Trails were created and installed as part of our Lottery Funded Stepping Forward Schools Project in 2013.
