Zog activity trail at Gisburn Forest

Head on an exciting forest journey with Zog and his friends at Gisburn Forest!

Follow the trail markers through the woods to find familiar characters from the story, collect stars as you learn like Zog did at dragon school, and complete interesting challenges along the way.

This family day out is even better with one of our Zog activity packs. Inside you’ll find a special lens which reveals hidden pictures along the trail, a booklet with fun activities, and a Zog mask to help make your day picture perfect.

Pick up your activity pack for £3 from Gisburn Hub Café.

Don't forget to share your family snaps from the trail on our Facebook page or on Instagram with #ZogTrail!
