 Nature is one of the best tonics… We’re so lucky to have so much variety on our Island, from coastal paths and orchid fields, to sweeping dunes and shady woodland. The Park has history, wildlife and scenery in abundance.

Discover some of the best walks in the Park by joining one of our expert-guided walks in May, or by exploring in your own time, using one of our self-guided routes.

We have partnered with Jersey Uncovered who are passionate about showing people the best of Jersey on their fascinating tours. Join one of their Blue Badge guides as they reveal the stories of different locations in our Park.

Towers Tides and Turnstones 

with Roger Noel

A coastal walk in the Park
with Nicky Mansell

This walk will explore the nature of the past and present coastline in the north of St Ouens Bay and may include an examination of the peat beds and ancient forests if the sand has not covered them up.

Meet at the Frances Le Sueur Centre.

Saturday 15th May - 2pm

Exploring Devil’s Hole
with Nicky Mansell

This walk will start at the Priory Inn and go down to Devils Hole to look at the amazing natural blow hole and the coastal landscape of the north coast.  From here we will go up on to the headland and into Le Mourier Valley where there is a large tree planting initiative. We will look out for the Choughs which fly around the area as part of the Birds on the Edge project and hopefully see some of the Manx Loaghton sheep. 

This is a slightly longer walk of 2 1/2 hours and will also take in some of the lanes of St Marys.

Meet at the car park at Devils Hole.

Sunday 16th May - 10am

A nature walk in the Park
with Nicky Mansell

This walk will take you through the small paths of the reclaimed land of La Mielle de Morville to the Wetland Centre. Bring your binoculars.

Meet at the Frances Le Sueur Centre.

Sunday 16th May - 2pm

Discover La Cotte a la Chévre
with Nicky Mansell

This walk is restricted in number and is for people with a good head for heights as the path is quite exposed, rocky and steep in places but well worth the effort as it takes you to the hunting cave of the Neanderthal people who inhabitted the island for over 200,000 years. Good footwear is essential and no dogs allowed.

Meet at Grosnez car park.

Ready for your walk?

So that you are able to fully enjoy your experience, ensure that you’re prepared.

Consider your footwear before you venture out. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes, and if you are heading out on the coast, then be prepared to get your feet wet (wellies might be a good idea!). Bring some extra layers in case the weather is changeable, and don’t forget your waterproofs, too. Take some snacks with you, even bring a picnic, just make sure you take any rubbish home with you. And, bring a camera along to capture any special moments.
