Bedgebury Pinetum Seeds of Hope Walking Trail

Making a difference at Bedgebury National Pinetum

Sometimes the future of the natural world can look bleak. But here at Bedgebury, we strive to make a difference; to play a leading role in conifer conservation and to help protect these wonderful trees for the future.

Go on a journey through our tree collection to discover stories of hope, of working together with other experts, of sharing knowledge and expertise and of helping to save the conifers of the world. 

The walking trail is approximately 1.5 miles  (2.5km) with an optional loop of 0.9 miles (1.5km) through the Bedgebury Conifer Conservation Project area. 

Conditions can vary, and in some places, paths can become wet and muddy, so take care and wear appropriate footwear.

Pick up a map on arrival at Visitor Centre.
