The Nature Trail is approximately 7 miles long, over a variety of surfaces. Some of the sections can be quite muddy at times. There are a wide variety of things to see en-route as the trail takes in all aspects of the airport.
Dotted around the trail are information boards relating to the wildlife in that area and local information.
Inside the first 6 caches is information you will need to de-code the 7th cache which will give you the location of the Mystery Cache. Each box is a plastic clip container containing a log book, clue, cache and a pencil. PLEASE ENSURE CACHES ARE NOT MOVED AS THERE ARE RESTRICTIONS ON THEIR PLACEMENT - THANKYOU.
