Moderate 7 miles / 11.3 km
Please note there is a £10 entry fee to Westonbirt Arboretum
Meet at 9.45am for 10am start just after the ticket barriers at Westonbirt Arboretum. Please allow time to buy your entry ticket to Westonbirt before we meet. There's plenty of parking. Gates and ticket sales open 9am, and there are usually coffee kiosks just near the entrance if you get there early.
This is a flexible and leisurely walk of up to 7miles to enjoy the late autumn leaves inside Westonbirt. We'll follow various tracks through the woods and take in the new Tree Top Walkway (300m long and 13m high, with optional rope bridge and mesh walk, access included in ticket price).
There's also the possibility of walking out of the Arboretum to a nearby village for a short pub stop if time permits (this is optional and hasn't been walked over so please allow for flexibility, we will decide on the day).
If anyone arrives late then we will be starting with the Tree Top Walkway so make your way there and try to find us.
Please bring packed lunch as the Westonbirt cafes and restaurants are likely to be very busy with long queues at lunchtime.
