There are two Tree Trails through the lawned area between The Mansion and The Roundhay Fox. The trails can be done individually or linked together into a circular route. Each trail will take between 20 and 30 minutes. The Trails highlight some of the more unusual trees such as Dawn Redwood and Ginkgo along with well known ones like Horse Chestnut and Sycamore. Many of the trees carry discreet labels to help you identify them.
The Tree Trail booklet contains colour photographs of every tree along with a brief description and some additional interesting facts. For example, whilst you are looking at the Mulberry tree you can read how the rhyme “Here we go round the mulberry bush” is believed to have started.
