What’s On in 2023


The Rainbow Trails Committee will be running a limited number of its own events this year, aimed at helping people to get to know the trails and feel confident in accessing them. They include “how to not mind getting lost in the trails” (no fixed dates, contact us to arrange minimum group of 2), cycling groups dates to be confirmed and, if there’s a demand, take your dog for a walk further afield with Lacey & Lola (and their pet hooman, Pete).

The Trails are open to book for your own horse riding, mantrailing, cycling and walking events on a number of dates already organised. If you are interested in holding an event, please just drop us a line. Scroll down for list of available dates reserved and events.

If you have any questions about events just drop us a line to admin@rainbowtrails.org.uk
