Map notes

The map is a mix of open grassland and lightly forested to scrubby, rocky slopes.There are many patches of blackberry in the open country, mostly not much more than a metre in height; although visibility is generally good, they have been mapped as solid dark green – impassable vegetation – rather than striped green. The map has been revised in February 2022 to take account of the increased size of many blackberry patches and to reinterpret some of the rock detail. Following a very wet season, long grass and weeds are abundant. It can be assumed that most of the map is slow run at best although it has not been mapped as such. A herd of cattle is busily attempting to improve the runnability but they are not expected to make a huge difference.

Watch out for pigs in the undergrowth.
