Gruffalo Sculptures at Hamsterley
Gruffalo Orienteering - fun family map reading challenge
Try our fun, navigational challenge at Hamsterley Forest using a simple map to find twelve Gruffalo markers hidden in the deep, dark wood.
If you're feeling competitive, choose to run, walk (or skip!) the course against the clock.
Before you begin the trail, pick up a Gruffalo orienteering leaflet with a certificate and map for just £1.50.
Until Christmas 2021, young Gruffalo followers can take part in our Gruffalo Spotters trail. Activity packs cost £3.50 can be purchased from the café or information point.
A special free Gruffalo Spotters App is available to download before your visit – more details at https://www.forestryengland.uk/hamsterley-forest/gruffalo-spotters-trail “
