Terrain Description

Hebers Ghyll Woods is a single slope of mixed forest. It is well used by the public so there are many small paths. The orienteering is interesting although there is more bramble than there used to be with some dead bracken. Ilkley Moor West is typical moorland with crags and steep slopes and good route choices. Also at present there is a lot of dead bracken (which is marked on the map). We hope this will have flattened by early Jan. Both areas contain some big crags - take care. The longest course also visits Panorama Woods - there are some very big crags here - please take great care.

Dog restrictions

On a tight lead please.
