The Edge of the Forest of Dean Treasure Trail starts at:
Symonds Yat West
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

The Trail explores three villages along the western edge of the Forest of Dean. Trailers can start in any of the villages, but the Trail is designed to start by the Butterfly Zoo in Symonds Yat West.
There is a short walk along the Wye River at Symonds Yat.
There are lots of other things to do there too - river cruises, a hedge puzzle and crazy golf as well as the Butterfly zoo.
From there, drive to Clearwell where the famous caves are located. The route doesn't pass the caves, but explores the heart of the village.
There are two pubs in Clearview. From there, drive to St Briavels with its haunted castle for a circular walk around the village and a fabulous view over the Forest of Dean from a picnic spot.
We recommend taking a picnic to eat at the end, although there is a pub and a delicatessen in St Briavels.
Please Note: At the time of writing, the minimum charge for parking in the Butterfly Zoo car park is £3 and is rigorously enforced. A camera takes a photo on arrival, so payments must be made.
A customer has recommended the Butcher's Arms, Clearwell as an excellent place to eat halfway through the Trail.
