Orienteering routes for everyone from beginners to experts
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. If you are a little more competitive the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time.
Various trails are available for children and families, beginners and experts.
- Yellow: for beginners and mostly on tracks and paths.
- Orange: suited to intermediate level where most of the controls are close to paths.
- Green: a longer route over tough terrain for more experienced participants.
Waterproof maps of the various routes are available from the visitor centre for £2.
Grade - Various
