If you are a regular reader, you will know that we are huge fans of a woodland walk. Our favourite place to walk through the woods is Moors Valley Park. There is something so relaxing about hopping in the car and arriving in a location that offers so much to discover.
We are lucky that we created a little man that enjoys the woods as much as us and each time we pass the sign for Moors Valley, he requests a visit. So last weekend we spontaneously found ourselves at the park and decided we were going to attempt to find the Tree Top Trail that’s mentioned on various sign posts around the woods.
We’ve been visiting Moors Valley for over 5 years now and despite walking and cycling round a large section of the woods, we’ve never found the Tree Top Trail. But we remained optimistic that we were going to locate it and headed off into the woods.
The great thing about a woodland walk is that you can allow it to lead you, rather than be lead by anything in particular. Obviously our main goal was to discover the trail, but we also played within the trees and on the various crafted play areas throughout the woods.
It was great to discover that all the play areas we discovered were hand crafted. Each area was themed and had a link back to nature. There was a spider funnel, birds nest and crocodile bridge, all carved out of giant logs.
Our little man could happily spend hours in the wood and to be honest, so could we. We all leave the woods feeling relaxed and if it’s possible, a closer little family. It took us about 45 minutes, but we found the Tree Top Trail and were glad we did.
