Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
We have not been back here since before the terrible eastern winds nearly two years ago. There is a lot of windblow dotted about, and it gives us more green vegetation than we could previously boast on this map. Courses avoid these, although some courses may encounter some trees lying across paths, and there are fairly obvious well-trodden circumventions or traverses navigating these obstacles. These fallen trees are marked on the map.
Otherwise, the area offers some lovely path running, and there are a number of faint, unmarked paths following contour lines through the forest, some animal tracks and some local mountain biker-made. The woods are in sleep mode, so expect lots of leaf and twig-crunching underfoot. There are numerous open levels where lead seams were mined, and these are encircled by fencing for the most part, or marked with tape. Please do not investigate these as some are very deep indeed.
Some of the longer courses will run over farmland adjacent to the woodland. There are cattle and sheep grazing here, and they keep to themselves. It is advisable not to run through groups of animals, but rather, stay peripheral. Each field has several access points. Where relevant, crossing points will be marked, particularly coming in and out of the woods, and there are numerous gates mapped. There are some impressive views of the sea to the north and west from these fields.

Info for dog owners
In view of the presence of livestock, no dogs will be permitted on the longer courses. There will be a Long Orange course for runners and those with dogs to get the maximum enjoyment out of the woodland trails, and the yellow course will be confined to the woodland also.
