The route starts in the Spynie car park which has picnic tables and also features a large wooden sun dial and stone plinth.
Following the path to the right, the trail snakes its way through a woodland of Scots Pine and broadleaf trees. Listen out for numerous small bird songs and possibly catch a glimpse of red squirrels, roe deer, rabbits, field mice and voles.
Follow the animal print stone waymarkers for a short circular trail or take the longer circular route that also links to the Ancestor’s Trail. The trail also has resting poles and seats strategically placed along the path, which is a lovely, peaceful stroll through a quiet woodland setting.
