Get in the mood for Halloween on this family friendly, pumpkin spotting self-guided trail through the park.

Buy a trail pack for £3 from the Visitor Centre and then set off on a walk through the woods searching for pumpkin trail markers. Solve puzzles and work out clues as you fill in your Halloween trail booklet, ready to return to the Visitor Centre to collect a 'well done' gift.

There's no need to book; just gather family, friends and a sense of adventure.

Please dress for a chilly day (costumes are very welcome) and well waterproof footwear. Well behaved dogs are welcome.

There's a small pay and display parking charge which goes back into maintaining the park. The onsite café will be open and selling hot food and drinks.
