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.

Preliminary results for Hollywood are up I'm still working on splitsbrowser and routegadget.
Thanks to everyone who came out, we even managed some sun for the barbecue.
Apologies to all on the Adventure course, some anti-social visitors to the forest stole or hid 3 of the controls on their course (one was retrieved).  And thanks to the many people who helped searching for the lost controls.
Thanks also to the CNOC team for all their help with the barbecue and the final event of the summer series.
