Denmead Jubilee Fitness Trail

Denmead Jubilee Fitness Trail

About The Trail

The Jubilee Fitness Trail was first set up in 2002 to mark the Queen's Golden Jubilee. 20 years later it needed refurbishment and what a great excuse to do so when the Queen's Platinum celebration came along. We have renamed it the Denmead Village Association Jubilee Fitness Trail 2002 Gold - Platinum Jubilee 2022.

The trail has been designed to encourage people of all ages to walk further, more briskly and more often to gain health benefits. The trail follows the Wayfarers Walk for a while but leaves it on Wayfarers Green and for much of the way follows the hedges and streams of the old field system near Forest Road. It is way-marked by the Trail logo.

The hedges attract wildlife and a variety of trees provide interest whatever the season. Another point of interest is the Nature Reserve and pond on Harvest Field. Wheelchair users can enjoy the sights and sounds, too.


Why Walk?

  • A sure safe way to health and fitness
  • Do it anytime with family or friends
  • The only equipment needed is a pair of comfortable shoes and loose clothing, but bring some water to hydrate yourself, too
  • You can start slowly and build up gently - at an average walking speed it should take 45 minutes or less, an ideal route for jogging laps
  • It is free, easy, relaxing, enjoyable and FUN!

Walking Can:

  • Make you feel good and give you more energy
  • Help you sleep better
  • Keep your heart strong
  • Improve muscle and bone strength


A brisk walk is about 3 miles an hour, which is faster than a stroll. You can tell you're walking briskly if you can still talk but cannot sing the words to a song. Many fitness experts consider a brisk walking pace to be 100 steps per minutes or 3 to 3.5 miles per hour. A brisk pace is relative since it refer to your level of exertion, which depends on your fitness level.

Brisk walking counts as moderate-intensity exercise and is a terrific way to increase your physical activity. This type of exercise gets your heart rate going, makes you breathe harder and faster, and supports healthy blood flow.

If you are taking medication, recently had an operation or in any doubt about your ability, please consult your doctor.
