This circular easy access walk travels through precious areas of Shorne Woods country park woodland and past important wildlife areas.

The Furzy Leas Meadows at the start of the walk is a fantastic centre to explore, with fishing, informal games and a children’s playground.

Regenerating silver birch trees can be spotted along the walk, which will eventually be overshadowed by the yew, oak and sweet chestnut trees growing beneath them.

Shorne dam pond is another important area for wildlife, but also a haven for swimming dogs.
