We recommend that if you are venturing into the forest, you take a map and a mobile phone.  It is not unknown for people to get lost. You can download a map here, or hard-backed copies are on sale at the Visitor Centre for £2.00 (FREE to new and renewing members of the Friends).  A free map of the Pinetum, with the suggested route of the season, is also available from the Visitor Centre.
