The next UK event is in Epping Forest near London on
The Ancestor's Trail is open to people of all backgrounds and age groups. As you walk you'll hear life's 4 billion year story, and learn what it really means to belong. This year we have:
* a Barn owl (and owner),
* science songs,
* nature poetry
* Tango dancing, ravens and neuroscience.
This website allows you to book your place on the walk. There's also an evening event afterwards with entertainment. The following morning we host various science lectures - all based at Cheshunt YHA.
Although originating in the UK, trail events now also take place in Canada and Russia (see our international page) with another to follow in the USA in 2018.
The UK event is made up of several trails of varying lengths (from 3 to12 miles) each guided by volunteers and starting at a train or tube station. Simply pick a distance that suits you best - one trail is suitable for (and regularly used by) wheelchair users. All the trails merge in time and, conveniently enough, finish at Cheshunt YHA which is right next to the train station with easy connection to central London.
