Tapnell Trail Isle of Wight

Tapnell Trail

The Tapnell Trail is a popular 6-mile circular walking route, that runs right through the middle of Tapnell Farm, with easy access from Tom’s Eco Lodge. The trail leads up onto the downs, for spectacular views over the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival site, and the south coast of the Island.
