Hidden away behind Sutton Golf Course is a fantastic gem called Loglands Nature Trail. I promise it is a beautiful place compared to the burned-out, “cold war” army camp-style signage!
WHAT IS IT?
Located next to Eastmount Playing Fields, the site is home to a large picnic area, wet meadows, and woodland. It’s perfect for relaxing family jaunts or dog walks, wildlife spotting and bike riding.
WHERE IS IT?
If you’re arriving by car the address and postcode is:
Loglands Nature Trail and Picnic Area,
East Carr Rd, Wawne, HU8 9LR
Follow the signs to the Driving Range (up East Carr Road), then the brown signs to the Loglands car park where you can park for free this side of the gates.
If you’re using public transport for your visit, it is the number 11, 8 or 8X. Click here for more details.
From the entrance, you can go straight ahead for a route around the edge of the woodland for a walk down the bank of the Holderness Drain. Alternatively, there’s a large picnic place on the left or take a right straight into the woodland.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
The woodland is widespread but sparse, so perfect to get off the main tracks and wander and do some den making. The trees are semi-mature so ideal for teaching little ones how to climb trees.
The children and I loved to spot all the wild fungi growing on the trees. I told them they were fairy seats 🙂
There’s loads of nice and flat, accessible pathways around most of the nature trail. Even after the rain, I don’t think they would be affected too much.
There are also huge sports pitches and Sutton Golf Course next to the nature trail.
