HINKSEY TRAIL REGENERATION
The Hinksey Heights Nature Trail is a privately-owned permissive path connecting with Chilswell Valley and
Harcourt Hill and leading to other famous local walks. The Nature Reserve, covering more than 12 hectares, is home to diverse wildlife and has been designated an Oxfordshire County Wildlife Site since 2000. A stroll along the nature trail offers stunning views down onto the city of Oxford and winds through woodland, reedland and fen (including nationally significant areas of very rare alkaline fen). It is a place for people (both from the local area and further afield) to come to enjoy a walk or a picnic by the pond. Teachers and students from local schools are also welcome to come and use the trail for outdoor education. It is maintained and supporter by a thriving group of community volunteers who give their time and experience
to ensure that this wonderful landscape, and its flora and fauna, can be protected, nurtured and enjoyed.
