Orienteering - test your navigation skills around the woods

Why not try your hand at orienteering, a map reading challenge for all levels. The aim for everyone is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map.

You can choose to follow one of our suggested routes or you can choose your own combination of controls. You can use the pack for a timed competition or you can take your time and just enjoy a new way of exploring the forest.

If you enjoy your first attempt at orienteering, why not come back and try a different course? Forestry England and Southern Navigators Orienteering Club can provide you with information on other forest sites with courses, and there are regularly local events taking place.
