Walkers can enjoy over 30 trails through the Island’s varied landscapes during the National Trust for Jersey’s annual four-day ‘Walking Through Spring Festival’ which starts on Wednesday 10th April.

It launches with a ‘Wildlife at Wellness’ walk along the coastal path at Pine Walk, St Catherine’s taking in the sunrise over the French coast and ends on Sunday 14th April with a walk in the area of St Ouen’s Bay as the sun sets.

In-between, walkers can participate in nature trails, forest therapy walks, wild food foraging, parish, coastal, woodland and wildflower walks as well as town trails and history tours.

Donna Le Marrec, the National Trust for Jersey’s marketing and events manager, said: ‘We’re very fortunate to have many wonderful sites in our care and what better way to enjoy them, but on a walking festival?’

The festival is being sponsored by Community Compass, the ‘connecting our communities’ grants scheme, which is an initiative to provide opportunities for Jersey residents to take part in cultural and physical activities.

Donna added that the festival is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the very best of the Island on foot at a traditionally beautiful time of year.

All walks are free and can be booked on or via Eventbrite.
