Zog Activity Trail


Zog is the new activity trail for families to enjoy at Kielder Castle in 2019. Launched on 11 January, the trail follows the premiere of the animated special from Magic Light Pictures, on BBC One during Christmas 2018.

Zog is a loveable, if somewhat clumsy dragon at Dragon School who is always striving to win a golden star. Zog is learning lots of essential dragon skills at school including flying, roaring, breathing fire and capturing princesses! Forestry Commission England are now inviting children to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey!

As well as winning gold stars along the self-led trail, there will be reveal panels which have a hidden image that children can find using a coloured lens in their activity pack.

Available to buy for just £3 the activity pack will also include a Zog mask, activity sheets a pencil and stickers.

Please note this trail is not fully suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. Assistance on some steps and with steep gradients will be required. Zog largely follows the permanent Duke’s Trail.
