Spooky Bat Hunt Trail at Belhus Woods

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 for a Spooky Bat Hunt Trail - can you find all of our little bat friends?

Purchase your trail guide from the Visitor Centre (cash and card accepted) or from the spooky shack van (cash only) for just £4. Follow the directions and keep your eyes peeled for the trail markers along the way.

Fun for all the family, fancy dress is welcome but not essential!

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

Please note the Visitor Centre at Belhus Woods is open from 10am to 4pm daily and is currently serving a limited menu of hot and cold drinks and snacks to take away. The park is open from 8am to 5pm.

We ask that visitors observe COVID guidelines which includes the rule of six and social distancing whilst on the trail and visiting the park.

Unfortunately, we are not offering any extra group activities including crafts or pumpkin carving or prizes this year to allow us to comply with social distancing measures.
