Wellbeing trail at Salcey Forest

Take some time for you on our wellbeing trail at Salcey Forest

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 free copy on-site at the Information Point or download your forest wellbeing journal before you visit.

Trail description

You’ll find the start of our Wellbeing Trail at our Walking trail Header (where all of our waymarked walking trails start, in the Visitor Centre). The trail will guide you along a tranquil route that will take you to a number of locations in Salcey Forest that are ideal for a spot of reflection. This trail will take you to our new Glade area where you’ll find the perfect opportunity to stop and take in the wonderful surroundings.

There are a number of seating opportunities along this trail for the added opportunity of wild life spotting, listening to the relaxing sound of the forest or just watching the world go by.  

This trail is supported by Sport England using National Lottery funding.
