Gruffalo Trail

About

Everything you need for action and adventure in the forest!

Located to the north of Nottinghamshire, Sherwood Pines is one of the largest forests in the midlands for the public to explore providing a picturesque setting for your next adventure.

 

It’s currently Home to the Gruffalo Orienteering where little ones can follow the clues through the forest aided by a free mobile app. They can even get an animated selfie with Gruffalo and his pals. Grab a Gruffalo pack from the information point to make sure you maximise the fun!

Sherwood Pines is one of the most popular destinations for mountain bikers in the East Midlands. You can improve your techniques on the skills loop before hitting the trails then venture on to the fast-flowing Blue Trail or the more challenging Red route. If you don’t have a bike the team at Sherwood Pines Cycle Centre can fix you up with a set of wheels!

 

Discover the latest children’s activity trail or take a short walk to the Robin Hood Hideout play area. For those a little younger, the Mushroom Village play area is ideally located next to the visitor hub that is home to Go Ape, a café, toilets and the visitor information point.

 

For those looking for something more sedate, the woodland is a secluded haven, perfect for calming walks away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You could even give forest bathing a go! Once all the fun is done, make sure you stop at Sherwood Pines Café for a refuel.

 

​​​​​Sherwood Pines is open daily from 8am to dusk, admission is free although there is a car parking charge of £3 for one hour, £5 for 2 hours or £8 for the full day.

 

Why not try your hand at Disc Golf...Like golf but with discs (frisbees!). Try this emerging sport in the beautiful surroundings of this well-loved forest. Surprisingly easy to get going and suitable for adults and children. Just like the other golf (don’t call it real!) you follow the nine whole course and get your disc in the baskets in as few throws as possible. You can hire discs at the visitor centre and there are no course fees, plus pre-booking isn’t needed. You’ll get into the swing of it in no time!

Whether you want to have a leisurely wander through the trees, get the kids to let off some steam at one of the exciting play areas or go on a family bike ride or play a round of disc golf Sherwood Pines is bursting with opportunities.
