Wellbeing trail at Symonds Yat

Take some time for you on our wellbeing trail at Symonds Yat Rock

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 on-site from Symonds Yat Rock Café or download your forest wellbeing journal before you visit.

About the route

Follow the yellow arrows from the accessible car park near the café to the start of the trail.  Enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings as you pass through the attractive woodland.

The trail is 2km (1.2 miles) long and is undulating, with one small steep downhill towards the end, and a slight incline back to the car park. The route uses a mixture of wide surfaced stone tracks and narrower unsurfaced paths. 

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