Orienteering

There are three family-friendly orienteering courses for you to enjoy in the 900 acres of Arrow Valley Country Park.

Choose a course and navigate to the next point on it, or simply hunt down the points in any order you like! Just use paths and landscape features to orient yourself.

Don’t forget to prove you’ve found the right point by making a note of the code written on it.

  1. Beginners Course: 1.3km, 30 minutes to complete
  2. Intermediate Course: 2.8km, 1 hour to complete
  3. Advanced Course: 4.3km, 2 hours to complete.

The courses all start at the west end of the Visitor Centre car park and finish back by the Visitor Centre itself.  Test yourself - can you find your way around the woods? For free-range kids, and grown-ups too! Why not take in Hidden Creatures Family Art Trail at the same time…?

Suitable for almost all ages, children in particular will benefit from the self reliance and independent decision-making that orienteering encourages.

We worked with the Harlequins Orienteering Club to create these courses.

Here's the orienteering map and brochure.
