Reindeer Trail at Belhus Woods Country Park

Get into the festive spirit with our Reindeer Trail! Can you help Santa find his reindeer?

Ho Ho Ho! Join us at Belhus Woods Country Park for a bit of festive fun for the local community.

Santa has lost his reindeer and he needs your help to find the names of his replacements. Have fun following our trail and exploring our woods.

Fun for all the family, festive outfits are welcome but not essential!
