Trek Options

The National Forest Trek is a one, two, or three-day charity challenge walk, across the 12 stages and 75 miles of the National Forest Way. For those unable to consider the challenge of long-distance walking, the “all-ages” flat 5km walk on the third day will offer time for reflection and celebration.
