Walks and events in the Island's countryside
There are many walks and events in the Island's countryside... and even a few in the town as well. This page is where you will find information about these walks, most of which are free to attend.
"Wight Summer Walks" and "Wight Winter Walks"
This is a programme of outdoor events and guided activities for all ages. Join local experts as they share their knowledge and special understanding of Island wildlife, conservation, landscape, history and rural economy. It's a chance to explore the Island's unique countryside and coast during friendly outings in the company of fellow walkers. Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust produces this programme twice a year, and produces a Wight Summer and Wight Winter programme.
The Histree Trails
The Isle of Wight Histree Trail Project ran from 2006-2009. The project was dedicated to finding and recording the Island's special trees, collecting local stories and researching local heritage. A series of trails were created to guide walkers around groups of trees in publicly accessible places.
There are eight Histree Trails across the Island ranging in length. Each trail is accompanied by a leaflet which takes you on a tour of the finest trees. The project is now over but the Histree Trails are now on this website and available for download.
