Gisburn Forest: Gruffalo Trail

A couple of weeks ago the bear and I headed out on a Gruffalo hunt. Forestry Commission England has set up interactive trails across the UK targeted at under five’s based on the Gruffalo story.

The trail was about a mile in  total including the walk from the car. Wellies are a must and there’s no access for prams or wheelchairs.

We followed the trail into the woods and there were clues along the way as to which character you would encounter. I’d also downloaded the Gruffalo app before going which meant we could bring the characters to life on the route. Some people may even manage a snap with their favourite character, not us though.




Pushing past…



Close enough!

Kitty loved the excitement of watching the animals on the app but loved the forest trail even more. I can’t blame her it was beautiful!

For more information about the Gruffalo trails please see the Forestry Commision England website.
