Wellbeing trail at Mamhead

Take some time for you on our wellbeing trail at Mamhead 

Spending time amongst the trees and really noticing nature is scientifically proven to boost our mental and physical health. Follow the trail to take a mindful walk through the forest that invites you to really relax. 

What to expect 

Themed panels along the trail will invite you to pause, notice and connect with the forest environment around you. 

A forest wellbeing journal is also available to help you get even more benefit from the experience, offering additional mindful things to do while you’re out in the forest and at home.  

Get your copy at nearby Haldon Forest Park (10 minutes away) or download your forest wellbeing journal before you visit.
