Gruffalo Orienteering - fun family map reading challenge

Try our fun, navigational challenge at Mallards Pike Lake using a simple map to find twelve Gruffalo markers hidden in the deep, dark wood.

If you're feeling competitive, choose to run, walk (or skip!) the course against the clock.

Before you begin the trail, pick up a Gruffalo orienteering leaflet with a certificate and map for just £1.50.
