Mobile Adventures activity trails

Get active with the whole family in the great Cambridge outdoors with our activity trails.

These adventure trails are ideal for children aged 5 to 11 years. Each adventure includes a variety of fun challenges – some have specific, family friendly themes.

You’ll need to download Wildgoose’s Mobile Adventures app to your smartphone – it’s available free from Google Play and the App Store. Watch Wildgoose’s video to find out how it works.

Look for a poster with a QR code at the beginning of each trail – scan the code with the app to get started. The codes are also linked below.

Regardless of how you do, there’s a free rosette for every family that completes an adventure! If you complete five adventures, you can claim and collect a free outdoor sports game. Games up for grabs include a swingball set, Nerf howlers and cricket sets, subject to availability.

The Abbey adventure (30 to 40 minutes) takes place around Abbey pool splashpad, and is themed around children’s cartoon and film characters.

The Cambridge landmark adventure (60 to 90 minutes)

The Cherry Hinton adventure (50 to 75 minutes) starts and finishes at the village centre, and is themed around Disney and superhero characters

The East Barnwell adventure (45 to 60 minutes) starts on Coldhams Common and visits East Barnwell nature reserve

The trails are part of the Active Families county project, which is funded by Sport England’s National Lottery Fund. The project is provided in partnership with LivingSport, Cambridgeshire County Council’s Public Health team, Fenland District Council, and Vivacity Peterborough.
