This trail takes the walker on gravel and sandy tracks through a wonderful area of meadow with different varieties of trees scattered throughout on the site of a past golf course. Spectacular views include the meadows and surrounding countryside dominated by Djouce Mountain. Wildlife abounds and you might be lucky enough to startle a pheasant, see a heron surveying an expanse of water, catch a glimpse of a deer, look up at birds of prey overhead and spy butterflies as well as coming across the remains of an old road.
