Love the trail but uncertain about your wayfinding skills? This three-hour session goes over basic map and compass skills, then hits the trail to offer key tips on how to follow and stay on the trail, how to find it again if you stray, and how to explore off trail. Well start with a 45-minute map-and-compass introduction, then use that map and compass and some Daniel Boone skills to find our way in the woods. Well also do some off-trail exploring, with the goal of purposefully venturing off the trail, then rejoining it again. Our goal is to make you confident hiking alone or taking a novice friend on the trail.

Course fee of $45 includes a compass.

Course is limited to eight participants.

How to find us:Drive to the end of the park and park road, to the paved lot. We will spend the first half hour or so in a nearby picnic shelter.
