Follow the trail to discover animals that have lived at Ashridge throughout history. Find the Irish elk, the straight-tusked elephant and friends that used to roam the woods, then return to the visitor centre to claim your Cadbury's choccy treat. There are two routes, a buggy friendly trail or a longer route designed to tire little legs.
