Try ‘Social Distance’ Friendly Activities Outdoors

Walk / bike ride / trail run

Walks, bike rides and trail runs are activities that can be done while easily adhering to social distancing requirements – note requirements, not recommendations.

This website already has many maps and descriptions of suitable rides that can also be used for walks, rides, runs.

However you can add a bit of spice to those activities with a bit of navigation thrown in.

Adventure activities in Daylesford

Head off to Cornish Hill reserve and try the short, medium or long courses on offer (6 if you count doing them in reverse) or plan a DIY course.

You don’t need to leave the tracks.
