On this occasion we decided to explore the Birch Trail, this is a short one mile route through a wide, firm gravel surface. This made it ideal for our pushchair. The Birch Trail (white route) is clearly marked throughout the trail, look out for the granite sculptures and the adventure playground!
Other trails that are possible here are:
The Plantain Loch Trail: A 2 mile walk on a mostly firm, gravel surface. This is a more strenuous way that sees you walk along the shores of Plantain Loch. A fantastic walk for those that enjoy exploring the woods, hunting out water and spotting many different wildlife!
The Quarry Trail: A 2.5 mile route heading through the top of the forest in search of Dalbeattie’s quarrying heritage. A strenuous walk with mostly firm gravel tracks. Again, look out for the sculptures and the adventure playground as you finish this trail.
Please note we have not tested the Plantain Loch or the Quarry Trail with our off road pushchair, if you have done so and it is doable with a pram please do leave a comment below.
