  • Course Status

  • Last checked September 2020. Everything OK except Trail-O (see below).
  • (NB.  Controls O, P, U, R, Y have been removed from the map, and the Orange course slightly adjusted accordingly – these posts have become impossible to access due to difficult vegetation.)
  • Trail-O issues:   In view of the impossibility of maintaining acceptable Trail-O experiences, we have decided to give up on all our Trail-O courses (here and at Dove Stone and Bowlee).  Maps can still be provided, but we don’t promise anything. 
  • Previous Trail-O notes … March 2017 – viewing post 6 is missing; red and white posts can not be found at 2 (2 posts not visible) and 9 (1 post not visible).   August 2017 – Summer growth can make several posts on the Trail-O difficult to see – only number 3 and 10 have all 3 posts visible.
