There is a selection of waymarked paths to follow so we did not get lost. Staff can advise depending on your abilities. We went on the red walk, one of the harder ones, there were several waterfalls along the way. A lovely few hours.

First time off roading for my nine year old son and couldn't have been happier. The service from all staff, from bike shop to visitor centre was fantastic. Highly recommend you visit and we will definitely return.
