Staying Found: On-Trail Navigation Seminar

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.
This hands-on field training day, to be held in the Tradition Lake area of Tiger Mountain State Park, will focus on practicing the navigation skills hikers and backpackers will need to "stay found" even when hiking complex trail systems. We'll offer training and practice to become confident reading a topographic map against the features of the terrain around you, get important information from a compass and altimeter, and maintain a steady awareness of where you are as well as how to find yourself if you get temporarily misplaced.
