Spooky Bat Hunt Trails

Join us at the Essex Country Parks for a Spooky Bat Hunt Trail - can you find all of our little bat friends?

Trick or treat? We've got a treat for you this half term to help you get into the Halloween spirit!

Join us at Belhus Woods Country Park, Great Notley Country Park or Weald Country Park for a spooky bat hunt.

Purchase your trail guide from the park cafes (cash and card accepted) for just £2.

Follow the maps and keep your eyes peeled for the trail markers along the way.

Booklet includes map, guided trail and some extra bat-related activities and facts.

Please note the visitor centres and cafes should be open from 10am to 4pm daily and are currently serving a limited menu of hot and cold drinks and snacks to take away.

Happy Halloween!
