Orienteering routes

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves walking or running, while navigating around a course using a detailed map and a compass.

The aim is to navigate in sequence between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as long as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.

Orienteering can take place anywhere, from remote forests and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It's a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors!

Any of our parks can be used for orienteering. We also have permanent orienteering trails suitable for all ages in Ormeau Park, Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park, Barnett DemesneClement Wilson Park and Cave Hill Country Park.

Eco-trails use orienteering to give young people the chance to learn about the environment. By following an environmental trail, children and teenagers can find out more about their local, natural and built environment and have fun at the same time.

We have eco-trails in:

  • Cave Hill Country Park
  • Ormeau Park
  • Clement Wilson Park
  • Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park.
  • Victoria Park
