The Lincolnshire Wolds and Fens are crisscrossed with numerous short, circular and long distance foot paths. Long distance paths: include the Viking Way, and the MacMillan Way.
Local walks around the fen villages of Old Leake and Wrangle have been drawn up for the benefit of guests wishing to stroll out the front door of the Ecolodge. These walks range from 1 hour to a whole day.
Guests at the Ecolodge have access to a wide variety of descriptive walking guides and leaflets, covering easy to strenuous walking. These have been produced by Lincolnshire County Council and cover a wide variety of terrain from sea shore and marshes to hills and woods. Also check out www.lincscountyramblers.co.uk
