This is a mainly coniferous forest with areas of deciduous trees. Courses will use much of the good runnability forest. There has been extensive recent thinning and consequently unmapped extraction lines. There is an extensive network of forest roads. There are areas of prickly undergrowth so gaiters are advised. Blue and Brown courses cross a minor road; care should be taken when doing so.
