From The North:
From the A68, pass through the villages of Fir Tree and Wilton-le Wear, drop down the hill and cross the bridge over the River Wear, turning right at the Hamsterley forest sign. From here follow the directions as below.
From The South:
From the A1, take junction 58 heading towards Corbridge on the A68. Stay on the A68 for 11.8 miles, passing through West Auckland and Toft Hill. The road drops steeply after Toft Hill, into the Wear Valley. Turn left as the sign post for Hamsterley forest. Travel on this road for 2 miles until you reach the centre of Hamsterley village, turning right at another sign post for Hamsterley forest. Follow this road for 1 mile, turning left at yet another Hamsterley Forest sign, this is the forest entrance. Stay on the road for 2.8 miles and the rally site should be on your right.
A definite course will be known at a later date but trails are typical Forestry Commission ranging from sandy, grassy stretches to short areas on new stone.
