Grizedale Trek

Grizedale Trek


Since 1977 leading international artists have created sculpture at Grizedale Forest, 10 square miles of natural woodland in the Lake District near Coniston Water. Every Thursday and also every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month (December 2019 to March 2020) leaving at 10:30am from the Grizedale main car park. Our trek winds our way through the forest with our native Fell ponies carrying everything we need for a hot picnic lunch by a tranquil tarn.

What we’ll do

Start the day making friends with your pack pony. Then we load the packsaddles with everything we need for a hot picnic lunch. Suitable for families, of all ages, the walk is about 4 miles round trip and takes approx 5 hours including lunch.

The therapeutic benefits of horses are known to help bring us inner peace and a sense of well being. As a herd animal, horses in particular are attuned to the feelings of others and are an ideal calming influence.
Grizedale Forest is a haven for a rich variety of wildlife including red and roe deer, squirrels, badgers, foxes, grouse and woodpeckers.
