Map and Terrain

Map scale 1:10000 contour interval 5m resurveyed 2015.

The forest is of mixed runnability with the western part being better than the central area, which is only used by the Blue course. There is a section of forest that has been clear felled and will be shown as a map overprint. This just affects the Blue course. The Blue and Green courses will be printed on a single map. For those entering the Blue there will be the option to cut the course short part way round effectively just running the Green.
