Connect with the forest through our Sensory Walk at Wyre Forest

Going for a sensory walk helps you get outside, be active and connect with nature.

Choose from two Sensory Walks at Wyre:

  • The short loop is 1.4 miles. An easy to moderate route on hard standing path and forest road, suitable for wheelchairs. Along the route you will SEE sculptures of a buzzard and a large fallow deer, you'll HEAR the trickling of the small waterfall and you can FEEL one of the giant Douglas Fir trees that grows in the middle of the trail.
  • The long loop is 2.5 miles. A moderate to challenging route on hard standing path and forest road for the most part, but with sections of grass and more off-road trail sections. This route is not entirely suitable for wheelchairs, but at Wyre Forest we do offer a Tramper (off-road mobility scooter) hire scheme that may suit some visitors. You will SEE metal animal sculptures, and FEEL different textures of bark from other trees such as Black Pear, Field Maple, Tulip Tree and Whitebeam.

Before you visit, you may wish to download the Making Walks Sensory toolkit produced by Sense which contains advice on planning walks and some suggested sensory activities. It’s the perfect companion for a sensory walk!

You can access all the Sensory Walks by downloading the free OS Maps app. To find out more about the OS Maps app, discover more Sensory Walks across England, and to download the Making Walks Sensory toolkit visit the Sense website.
