Tall Trees Trail

Discover the tallest tree in England and walk amongst giants.

At 60m (197ft) the giant Douglas-firs rise dramatically above their surroundings. Originally planted as an arboretum in the 1870’s, this peaceful grove boasts a collection of exotic and other record breaking trees, including other giant Douglas-firs and the tallest magnolia in the country.

Learn more about the surrounding forest with our interactive trail experience. It’s a great trail for a short stroll, or the ideal way to relax and unwind for an afternoon enjoying the spectacular scenery. It’s perfect for buggies and wheelchairs too.

Blue badge holders can start at our purpose built car park at the entrance of the trail. We recommend that wheelchair users park here. You can also start at Nutcombe Bottom Car Park.
