'50 things' is a collection of activities for every young adventurer to try outdoors. From bug hunting to star gazing and everything in between, you will be a seasoned adventurer by the time you have done them all. But it doesn’t end there and you can try out your favourite ’50 things’ over and over again, wherever you go!

You won’t be able to do them all on the Clent Hills, so here is our pick of the best ones to try on your visit here. Don’t forget to visit the Welcome Point at the Nimmings Wood car park to get your own copy of the full list, or click here to download it for yourself.


2. Roll down a really big hill
The Clent Hills didn’t get their name for being really flat! When you have climbed up a slop, why not try rolling back down it again? Just check your route before you go and make sure there isn’t any rubbish or dog poo you might roll through!

9. Eat a picnic in the wild
Bring your lunch for a full day out on Clent The grassed area on the top of Clent Hill is a great place to enjoy a meal with a view! Just remember the Countryside Code and take all you litter away with you.

12. Have fun with sticks
There are plenty of trees on Clent, and that means lots of sticks! You could try making a trail with sticks for someone else to follow.

28. Climb a huge hill
The Clent Hills have three different hills – Clent Hill, Walton Hill and Adams Hill. There is a car park serving each Hill so you could always try to get to the top of each one!

31. Make friends with a bug
Stop by the Natural Play area and have a look around for some bugs. Try looking under plants, lifting logs or having a dig in the woodchip on the floor. It’s the perfect habitat for creepy crawlies. Just remember to put them back somewhere safe!

50. Take a friend on a nature adventure
Why not bring a friend to visit the Clent Hills and show them your favourite place to go and things to see?
