Adventure starts in Dalby Forest this summer

Discover your next day out in over 8,500 acres of beautiful scenery, Gruffalo adventures, and trails galore this summer holiday.

Delve deep into the trees looking for sculptures of the Gruffalo and his friends. Challenge your inner detective with the Lumberjills’ Loot Treasure Trail. Join in the festivities and celebrate the Gruffalo’s 25th birthday on a fun-filled family experience, pop into the Visitor Centre to buy a pack and get started.

Bring along a picnic and make it a day worth planning for. Surrounded by nature. Take the kids’ learning outside of the classroom, with a history of forestry work through the ages with the Lumberjills art exhibition in the Courtyard. Open daily from 9am – 4pm with free entry.

Visit our shop for some captivating local book including Forestry England’s ‘We the Forest’. Great for those looking to learn more about the nation’s forests. Show your support for nature with forest themed merchandise or take home your very own Gruffalo and make story time remind the little ones of their great day out.

Why not combine your visit with a drop-in to one of our on-site cafes for a spot of lunch? Perfect for a post-walk pick me up! Or perhaps try something new. Hire a bike from our partners in Dalby Forest Cycle Hub and hit the trails for some fast-paced action.

Ask our friendly staff for advice on trail, maps and packs or visit our website to plan your perfect day out.
