Gruffalo Orienteering Trail

Gruffalo orienteering leaflet, map available at visitor centre £1.50

Enjoy our fun, navigational challenge at Sherwood Pines by following the easy to read map and finding twelve Gruffalo markers hidden in the deep, dark wood.

If you're feeling competitive, choose to run, walk (or skip!) the course against the clock.
Before you begin, head to the Visitor Centre to pick up a Gruffalo orienteering leaflet with a certificate and map for just £1.50. 

 

Gruffalo Spotters Trail
This trail starts by the classroom.
Activity packs are available to purchase from the Visitor Centre during opening times and cost just £3.50.

Follow the Gruffalo Spotters trail at Sherwood Pines, spot the signs and see what creatures you can find!  Join us for a family day out with a difference. With the amazing new Gruffalo Spotter 2 app, fun activity pack and trail, you’ll get to interact with all your favourite characters as you go in search of the Gruffalo in the deep dark wood. 

When visiting, it is important that you and your family follow social distancing guidelines and keep 2m apart from other groups where possible. Please remember to wash your hands before you start the trail and bring hand sanitiser to use while out in the forest.

How does it work?

1. Download the new Gruffalo Spotter 2 app

Point the brand new app at special markers along the trail and watch the characters from The Gruffalo story come to life. Thanks to amazing augmented reality technology, you’ll be able to interact with each of the characters as they appear within the forest around you. Capture the fun by taking videos and photos with your favourites!

Remember to download the app before you visit the forest.

2. Get your paws on the Gruffalo Spotters trail activity pack

Head to the Visitor Centre to grab your activity kit, packed with fun things to do to help you spot the Gruffalo. Inside you'll find:

Gruffalo mask and paws
Activity leaflet
Crayon and pencil
Nature spotters game and instructions
Stickers

To keep visitors and our staff safe we are asking that people make contactless payments when buying their activity packs and wear a face covering during the purchase.

3. Follow the trail

The trail at Sherwood Pines starts by the classroom. Complete fun family activities and learn about each animal from the book as you follow the new interactive trail. There are also rubbings to complete and other characters to look out for as you go! Use the app to see the characters appear in the forest around you.
