This is a free event is for those walkers with a moderate level of fitness who want to take their time and enjoy the area in their own time. It’s perfect for getting your kids out in the great outdoors to blow off that back to school steam! You will need to bring good walking shoes, suitable clothes for the conditions, plenty of water, your lunch, and your camera. Because this is a working farm please leave your dog at home. (Sorry Rover!).
Walkers can register on the day (Sunday 28th February 2021) and begin from the Bacon St (Broad Bay) entrance from 10.00am with registrations closing at 11.30am. This event is free and walkers will receive a guide to area before they begin. Parking will be available in the paddock adjacent to the start at the end of Bacon Street.
