PLEASE NOTE: we are sorry but the orienteering trails are currently CLOSED due to damage to the trails. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Orienteering is a great way to explore the woods, being a perfect mix of fitness, skill and fun. Fineshade Wood permanent orienteering course has two different courses. There is the very easy beginners's white course, and the still easy but slightly harder yellow course.

Both courses start from the bottom of the main Fineshade car park, near to the Oak Leaf children’s play area.

To learn more about orienteering and gain the necessary skills, contact Leicestershire Orienteering Club.
