Take on the Easter challenge...

Embark on a fun challenge for all the family. Find the Easter-themed markers around Brockholes Nature Reserve and complete the challenge to grab your certificate and a chocolate Easter treat.

Brought to you in partnership with British Orienteering, Xplorer is the ideal way to get all the family out and about in the fresh air.

There are two challenges available:

  • Challenge 1 - The markers you need to find are located on or next to surfaced paths and is pram friendly. The markers are in number order and form a circular route and is perfect for those who are new to Brockholes or to orienteering or those with younger children. The markers are Easter themed.
  • Challenge 2 - The course represents more of a challenge and you will need to use your navigation skills to track down the markers located across the reserve! Not suitable for prams. These markers are not Easter themed.
