Minsmere Health Walks

A lovely walk around Minsmere, home to some of Suffolk’s greatest wildlife. Depending on the weather and walkers’ abilities and preferences, we will take a coastal, woodland, or reedbed route. During the Health Walk you'll get free access to the reserve, but normal entry fees apply at other times. No dogs are allowed, except assistance dogs kept on a short lead. Grade: 2 or 3. 1.5 - 2 miles / 1 - 1.5hrs. Led by RSPB volunteers trained as Health Walk Leaders, these walks are run as part of the One Life Suffolk health walks programme.

Meet at the visitor centre at 10.45 am for an 11 am start. No booking is needed for these walks.
