Gruffalo Orienteering - fun family map reading challenge

The Gruffalo Orienteering is currently closed due to lockdown.

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

If you're feeling competitive 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, available from the Visitor Centre (card payments only).
