The Red Trail is a forest lovers dream. Taking around 30 minutes to complete with options to make it longer or shorter, it’s the perfect all rounder. As you enter the trail you are instantly immersed in the wonderful woodland. A large variety of trees call this area home so keep your eyes peeled for a whole range of woodland creatures. Roe deer can often be spotted grazing or sheltering in the centre of the woodland.
Short & Sweet
Also known as The Wildernesse Walk, our Yellow Trail is a relatively flat route with a surface suitable for bikes and buggies. You’ll enjoy a series of easy loops that take in impressive views of St Mary’s Church and Dalkeith Palace, as well as a little donder along the River Esk.
Taking approximately 20 minutes to complete the Yellow Trail gives you the chance to add on extra adventures to your day at The Park. Why not book a Fort Douglas session or pay a visit to Restoration Yard while you’re here?
