National Forest Trek

HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

The National Memorial Arboretum, part of the Royal British Legion, joins the Nation, the Commonwealth and the rest of the World in mourning the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was a Life Member of the Royal British Legion and he was gracious and generous in his support of the National Memorial Arboretum over many years.


Walking together for a better future

Three charities have partnered together to create the National Forest Trek, a new fundraising challenge event building hope for the future by transforming lives and creating a forest for everyone to enjoy, whilst ensuring that those who have served the public are never forgotten.

Starting from Beacon Hill, near the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC), through ancient woodland and newly planted trees, and finishing at the National Memorial Arboretum, the nation’s year-round centre of remembrance, join the National Forest Trek and you’ll be walking together for a better future.

Trek Options

The National Forest Trek is a one, two, or three-day charity challenge walk, across the 12 stages and 75 miles of the National Forest Way. For those unable to consider the challenge of long-distance walking, the “all-ages” flat 5km walk on the third day will offer time for reflection and celebration.
