Go wild on the wild play trail

The wild play trail at Sizergh gives children (and adults) an excuse to explore and play in the woods. The Sizergh Family Volunteers helped design and plan the trail, which tests your balance, stamina, resolve and your brainpower and it takes you off the beaten track into the depths of the wood allowing you to experience ancient trees, exotic looking fungus and beautiful ground flora.

You will be sharing the wood with nesting buzzards, Roe Deer and Foxes who all call Chapel wood their home, so make sure that your your senses are sharp!

Play this great video and see what the wild play trail is like...it's great fun!

Park in the main Sizergh car park and walk over to the veranda, you will find the first clue hanging on the larch cladded wall. Following the clue will take you to the start of the play trail. Come prepared with stout footwear, the trail is about a mile and a half long loop, returning you back to the car park. The play trail is open all year round, but it may be slippy in wet or icy conditions.
