There are four waymarked walks at High Lodge - the Nature trail (1.5km), the Pine trail (1.5km), the Fir trail (5km) which leads to the Beech trail (5km). A map showing the walks around High Lodge is available from the Information Point. 

Practice your map reading skills and find your way around the permanent Orienteering course at High Lodge. There are three routes you  can take depending on your level of skill and fitness.

For younger would-be orienteers, we have the Squirrel Scamper trail at High Lodge. This introduces chidren to basic map reading skills.


Four waymarked cycle routes are available - the green family Shepherd trail, the blue Poacher trail and the more challenging red Beater trail and red Lime Burner trail. Cycle Hire is available.  

For the current condition of the cycling trails
