A circular trail through Thetford Forest on the border of Suffolk and Norfolk. The trail takes you deep into the forest to enjoy the wide variety of fir species planted throughout the forest. Along the way you're likely to see plenty of wildlife including squirrels, rabbits and deer (much to the delight of our dog!) and there is also an opportunity for younger family members to enjoy the giant play sculptures. The walk is relatively flat with just a few steady slopes and the woodland tracks will be muddy after wet weather and in winter. There are no stiles or gates and the route is waymarked to help you find your way. There is a cafe and toilet facilities at the start of the walk. The visitor centre can get very busy at peak times but once you're out into the forest it soon becomes peaceful again. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
