Rough Wood

There are 3 beginner courses, 2 trickier ones and 3 harder ones. The course distances on the maps are measured as straight lines between the checkpoints - expect to cover approximately half as far again as you skirt obstacles.

Rough wood is made up of a series of pools in the middle of the oldest and largest woodland in Walsall (Rough wood represents about 10% of the oak woodland within the West Midlands). It’s a great place to go for a wander to lose yourself in nature for a while - the old oaks and lovely sunny clearings are full of wildlife, from nesting woodland birds, as well as toads, frogs, two species of newt, and lots of woodland insects.
