Orienteering routes for everyone from beginners to experts

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.

There is a permanent course at High Lodge, with three different routes available for children and families, beginners and experts.
