Stimulate your senses on this short trail around the Forestry Commission's Blackwater Arboretum, with its small but nationally important collection of trees from all over the world. Sensory information boards along the trail provide fascinating facts about the tallest, heaviest and toughest trees in the world. This walk takes you past majestic conifers planted in the 1850s, some of the oldest Douglas fir trees in Britain and includes views of two enormous redwoods. 

Be Forest Friendly: Make time to enjoy healthy exercise, fresh air, beautiful surroundings and the rich wildlife. Plan your route to be out of Forestry Commission car parks by dusk.
