FREE Stick Man Forest Trails (England Only)

FREE Stick Man Forest Trails

If you have ever been on The Gruffalo Trail before then what I am about to say will excite you - there are Stick Man Trails too! If you want to do something really fun and inexpensive this summer then this is for you!

The Stick Man Trails are scattered across England and are completely FREE of charge. Each trail varies depending on where you go - some are one mile long, whilst others are two.

There are 23 venues hosting these trails including Dalby Forest, Whinlatter Forest, Hamsterley Forest, Hicks Lodge and more.

Some of the Forests sell Activity Packs at the Visitor Information Centres for £3. The pack contains a trail leaflet, activity sheets, pencil, crayon and pipe cleaners to make your Stick Man.

Parking charges may apply.

Whenever we do days out like this with the kids, we save ourselves a fortune by taking a picnic or packed lunches.
