Travel Directions and Parking
The Signed From location and Forest Entry are co-located just outside Yorkley on the Parkend Road. Use the icons above to get directions and route options.
Parking is on a level forest track. Assembly is about 3/4 of a mile along this track, with parking backing up from Assembly towards the forest entry. The exit is back the way you came in but the the track is wide enough to pass in many places.
The Start is 250m from Assembly. The Finish is 100m beyond the Start, around 350m from Assembly/Download.
We are using the Eastern most part of Danby Lodge which is a mixed deciduous and coniferous forest. Generally runnable with some patches of brambles/bracken. A steep escarpment runs North to South. There are some detailed contour features from old mining activities.
1:10,000, printed on waterproof paper, with control descriptions on the map and available loose at registration.
