WALKING

Walking

With over 1,200 acres to explore, there are some great walking opportunities in the Park. Why not take a small stroll to the famous Pithead and back through the woodlands to the park centre, or a ramble along the nature trail to enjoy a spot of bird-watching at the bird hide? You can also walk around the loch itself or take a longer trek up to Harran Hill Woods and beyond.

We always recommend you bring some appropriate clothing and footwear if you are going out for a walk in the Park.

Around the Loch

A circuit of Loch Ore through varying landscapes including the grasslands and bronze age sites on the Clune, farmland and the attractive woodlands of the Nature Reserve. Short detours take you to viewing points in Cadgers Wood and to the hide. Wide, smooth surfaced paths throughout with short, moderate slopes on the Clune. There are wide gates at several points and two bridges. One section is shared with traffic.

Mystery & History

An easy circuit through sheltered woodland planted during the land reclamation of the 1960’s and 1970’s, taking in the former island of Lochore Castle and the cut of the River Ore from the 1792 loch drainage project. A flat, easy walk on wide tarmac and surfaced paths, some sections may be damp after heavy rain.

Wildlife & Woodland

A delightful walk at any time of the year, whether enjoying the greens of spring or the golds of autumn you’ll see hazel coppice, ancient woods, veteran trees and all the wildlife that lives there. Two fairly steep slopes on a wide track with uneven sections which can be muddy after rain. Includes a grassy field crossing, several gates and a stile. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
