This is the longest of the walking trails in Nightingale Wood.
In summer skylarks soar and yellowhammers perch in the hedgerows. In winter the hedgerows fill with redwings and fieldfares. Of the larger animals, the most likely to see is the roe deer, although you may also be lucky to see a fox crossing the path.
From the bird hide situated on this trail you can look out over South Marston Brook, a quiet place to rest and watch the birds and animals as they come and go.
