Hidden secrets of the Pinetum walk

A walk to take you off the beaten track to discover areas of the pinetum that are hidden from the main visitor route and waymarked pinetum trail.

This walk was created by the Friends of Bedgebury Pinetum to celebrate the tree collection and the diverse habitats of the pinetum. 

The route follows a mix of paths, mainly mown grass, with some moderately steep inclines and downward slopes, and one section of private road. Conditions can be slippery underfoot in winter and bad weather, so please take care and make sure that you are wearing appropriate footwear.

Please keep your dog on a lead for this walk as it is within the boundaries of the National Pinetum.
