SALCEY FOREST WOODPECKER TRAIL AND CAFE WALK | 6 MILES |
October 9, 2019 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm BST
MEETING PLACE: Outside the Cafe at Salcey Forest.
REGULAR GROUP WALK LEADER: Julia Doherty
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
The Woodpecker Trail is the longest of the walks at Salcey, so pull on your boots for a full flavour of the trees of Salcey. You'll meander through oak, conifer, horse chestnut and a lovely area of beech as you enjoy your long walk through the woods.
This walk circles the whole forest, and takes in some of its most beautiful areas. A perfect walk if you want to get away from it all and enjoy the ancient woodlands surrounding you.
As it is a long route, it is ideal for dogs, but please be considerate to the wildlife and keep them in sight at all times, as the quieter areas are favoured by some wildlife. Deer are seen here frequently, along with most of the bird species native to Salcey, including recent sightings of a red kite.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- A drink and snacks.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No. Just bring yourself and then tell the organisers your name when you arrive. We will then check you in.
