These trails get us outdoors, often seeing places we've never explored before, having fun together and notching up a fair amount of steps on my pedometer and best of all they are free!!
The amount of talent and amazing decoration never fails to amaze us. There are also some very cleverly named pigs. We managed to find over 20 pigs (most of which I remembered to photograph!) in the few hours we were on the trail. Sadly a couple of them were missing as they had been vandalised. It was such a shame to see a number of children climbing all over the pigs, despite there being very clear notices, and their parents were not bothered in the slightest. It's saddening when so much hard work goes into these events and the ultimate aim is to raise a huge amount of money for charity after the public has enjoyed the trail over the summer.
