The National Forest Walking Festival 2013 takes place from May 18th to 30th and in it’s sixth year, promises to be the biggest so far.
With 100 walks on offer there will be something to suit all ages and abilities.
Discover rolling English countryside dissected by meandering rivers and canals, dotted with picturesque historic villages and at it’s heart, The National Forest.
The National Forest is Britain’s boldest environmental project where 8 million trees have been planted, creating a “massive forest for the nation” across 200 square miles of gentle countryside.
Walks include; gentle strolls, walks suitable for wheelchair and families, to longer more strenuous rambles.
Guided walks are led by local experts who are keen to pass on their knowledge of the area’s rich and varied history, flora and fauna, myths and legends.
Why not try Nordic Walking or geo-caching.
Most walks are free and do not need to be booked.
