Monster Mysteries Trail at Danbury Country Park

Head to an Essex Country Park this October half term and pick up or download a free Monster Mysteries Trail supported by the Essex Year of Numbers.

There are a number of spooky monsters and curious creatures lurking in our park. Can you find and count them to help our rangers complete the spell to send the monsters home?

Pick up or download a free Monster Mysteries Trail and take the physical dares along the way for a fun run around this Halloween. You can even come in costume if you like!

When you've completed the trail work out the magic number (the total) and email us to enter our prize draw to win an Explorer Pass (worth £85) and goody bag.

Take your booklet home to complete all the activities.

  • A limited number of FREE trail booklets will be available to pick up from the park while stocks last!
  • You can also download the trail as a PDF to your phone
  • Or print at home

This trail is supported by the Essex Year of Numbers.
