Treasure Trail

Muddy says: Get them away from catching Pokemon and outdoors instead catching clues. These guided trails offer Sherlock-style capers or spy missions for families to carry out together.

Get the kids off the iPad and out in the open instead with one of these well thought out, self-guided treasure trails aimed at discovering more about where you live or for taking on holiday. Choose from three: a Treasure Hunt, Spy Trail or Murder Mystery. Each sets you a mission at its outset – follow the route together, answering a series of clues along the way to find your answers.

The website lists over 30 different trails across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire plus another 1000 across the UK. Clear symbols explain at a glance the length of the Trail, how long it should take and whether it’s pushchair/wheelchair friendly – most average two miles and take a couple of hours. There’s even a text line offering instant clue help if you’re stuck (#handy). Completed the Trail? Submit your answer online for a chance to win up to £1000 (#heynotbad). At just £6.99 each, these treasure trails offer a great value family activity whether you win or not.
