Please note that, due to recent felling, the orienteering maps of Haldon Forest Park are out of date.  As a result, the permanent courses are incomplete and are not being serviced whilst this programme of work is taking place. It is hoped that the permanent courses may be restored later in 2017, together with an updated map. 

Please note that Haldon Forest Park is a working forest. If you encounter any forest operations during your visit please adhere to all on-site safety signage. 

Users can always contact the Ranger's Office beforehand on 0300 067 5826 and speak to a member of the team for further information. 

Travelling by car on the A38 turn off at the exit for Exeter Racecourse (there are no slip roads for this turning). Follow the signs for Haldon Forest Park. The Haldon Gateway car park is signposted further along the road on the left.
