Families visiting Whinlatter Forest can now enjoy a children's book themed trail.

This comes after the success of other family-friendly activities, set up by the Forestry Commission England, such as the successful Gruffalo trail.

Zog is character from one of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s books, and the star of the brand new trail that has recently opened to the public.

Children are invited to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like the clumsy dragon.

The trail will be an amazing adventure, encouraging visitors to make the most of the winter season and beyond in our beautiful forest. “We are very excited to be working with Magic Light Pictures again and are looking forward to families having a new and exciting reason to visit Whinlatter this winter.”

– Adrian Jones, Forestry Commission Recreation and Business Manager
