We’re excited to announce that we have two brand new orienteering courses available from the Visitor Centre. Pop into the Visitor Centre and pick up a course map for £1. The maps are available during Visitor Centre hours and can be done at any time. No equipment needed (although you can use a compass), although sturdy footwear is recommended.

Designed for beginners, each course will take you around Cnwch Wood where you can enjoy the scenery while challenging your mind! 

The shorter course is just over 1km long, while the slightly harder course is just over 3km long, but both are suitable for beginners. Please email rangers.elan@dwrcymru.com if you would like any more information.
