An out and back walk along the mid section of the old Horncastle to Woodhall Junction railway line in Lincolnshire, known as the Spa Trail. The trail, part of the Viking Way long distance path, passes through a mix of woodland and open countryside. Along the way you will discover impressive sculptures made from wood, stone and metal, all reflecting local wildlife and links with the past. The full walk follows the same route for the out and return legs, so you can shorten it to any length you would like. The trail is a flat surfaced path with no stiles, gates or other obstacles, making it ideal for wheelchairs, pushchairs and disability buggies. The route is a bridleway and so you will be sharing the trail with cyclists and horse riders. The path is fenced for the entire route and dog waste bins are provided at intervals. The stone surface is very firm, but there can be a shallow amount of mud and leaf litter in the autumn and winter months. There are no toilets or other facilities along the trail. Approximate time 3 to 3.5 hours.

Fantastic trail path to run or walk, it’s best to park in Woodhall and pick up the Viking trail through the golf course, great woodland views.
