Terrain Summary The underfoot conditions on the main forest trails and deep in the forest is generally not too bad. However there are some very wet and muddy places, especially along the small forest paths which are cut up by mountain bikers, so wearing you nice white trainers is not a good idea. The better grip you can have, the better – to get up and over the earth walls, through small water channels and across steep slopes. Some areas of runnable forest (marked white on the map) have areas with fallen trees.
Previous Maps/Routegadget The last NICS event held in this area was in March 2023. Previous Routegadget map and courses available here:
Course Notes 🟡 Yellow – km + m climb – along paths with more route choice decisions. Appropriate for newcomers and younger juniors with some experience.
🟠 Orange – km + m climb – skills needed to navigate away from paths and more route choice decisions, some compass skills are expected. Aimed at novice adults and improving juniors.
🟢 Light Green – km + m climb – this course requires confident map reading and compass skills.
🔵 Short Blue – km + m climb – technically and physically demanding course.
