Walk details

This short stroll on the southern edge of Barton Broad follows a boardwalk that unlocks a secretive woodland in the Broads National Park. 

This boardwalk is easily accessible by wheelchair and takes you on a journey of discovery into a lost world, which has remained isolated for half a century.

The mystery trail leads through a swampy, wildlife-filled woodland, emerging to give you glorious panoramic views over the second largest of the Norfolk Broads.

TOG VERDICT: The Norfolk Broads may be more famous for their waterways, but this short walk proves you can have just as much fun on foot as on boats in this beautiful National Park.

Carpark: Market Place Car Park, Great Yarmouth, NR30 1LX
