The map has been updated in May 2022.  In the 4 years since the last update many areas have been felled, but the more mature forest has opened up considerably.
There have been recent thinning works in the forest.  Most extraction tracks are not shown on the map.  Brashings may impede running in some areas mapped as runnable forest.

Difficulty rating 5/10 Paths through mostly runnable forest with some rough parts
