Navigation and Orienteering 

Dinton Activity Centre has a series of navigation and orienteering activities which are either self-led or instructor led. 

For a self-led exploration of the country park, download a map, print it off and away you go. Our full orienteering course is a 30 control point course and was built in association with the British Orienteering Federation. The course is spread across the country park, taking you around the lakes, across meadows and grassland and on a grand tour of our beautiful 400 acre site. There is also a possibility of exploring a shorter route, the last ten control points, 21-30, which is a recent addition to the course and keeps participants on meadow land and away from the main lakes and walking trails of the country park. 

Another short route is the All Access Trail. This trail starts out from the main car park, continuing around our fantastic play park, along the lake and looping back to the car park, all on easy trails. This course is best suited to younger participants and is wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
