Courses recently re-planned on an updated map (2015). The white course is for beginners and follows attractive trails adjacent to the Visitor Centre (passing a number of forest sculptures). The orange course offers an intermediate challenge in a mixed woodland setting. The green course has been planned to keep to the best parts of the forest, with middle-distance style orienteering for the more experienced.
