The terrain is mainly coniferous woodland with some line features and many spot features which are mainly boulders. Large parts of the woodland have extraction lanes from thinning. These are depicted on the map with the forest, runnable in one direction symbol. The well used extraction lanes are depicted with the ride symbol as are ‘normal’ rides.
