Enjoy a family bike ride on the Explorer trail

Explore Dudmaston's wider estate. This mixed surface route is suitable for families and less experienced cyclists.


Out for a jog? The Explorer trail is 3.4km long - a good distance for beginners and little legs to try. The route is circular and begins and finishes in the car park.

Natural play

Head to the Scout Camp, half way round the Explorer trail. It's a great place to pause for a picnic and play some of your own outdoors games. Climb the tree with many trunks, build a den using natural materials or challenge friends and family to follow the tree stump stepping stone path.
