This MTB Orienteering event covers the complex track network around Langford Park and Manjedal scout camp and for the longer courses, includes a newly mapped area east of Nettleton Rd, 'Alcoa Hilltop', where you can relive the history of aluminium mining in WA's south west. The area includes mining access trails, dirt bike tracks and regrowth plantation forest. Come and try out the courses designed by WA's national MTBO representative, Ricky Thackray.

Course notes: This map utilises the extensive single track network of Langford Park as well as the underutilised tracks east of Nettleton Rd (Coronation Rd), which has been remapped to Australian track grading standards. There are some overgrown tracks in the area and these are shown with the green highlighted track symbol but can be avoided with clever route choice.
