Walking routes

This beautiful 4.5km circular walk takes you along woodland tracks by the River Bovey and along heathland paths on Trendlebere Down. Hand drawn illustrations show a selection of the butterflies you may see along the route but, depending on the time of day and the season, you may not see all of them …but you may see many more!

Hisley Heritage Walk
This walking route through Hisley Wood starts at the car park on the edge of Trendlebere Down and takes you along a series of ancient tracks, examining the heritage of the area along the way. The route climbs gently through woodland, providing dramatic views before a steady descent back to an old bridge, returning to the starting point. Allow 2.5 hours.
