Backcountry Navigation With A Map and Compass
Sunday, January 17, 2021
$69 for REI Members
$79 for non-members
During this class, our instructors will help you understand the information provided on your map, the proper use of your compass, and how to put the two together. You'll learn about magnetic north, true north, and magnetic variation (declination). After covering these fundamentals, you'll get time to practice taking a bearing from the terrain and your map so that you can make sense of your position and plan a route. This engaging course is a great introduction to outdoor navigation and map reading!
From Dupont Road, turn onto Sky Valley Road (smooth gravel). Travel 1.6 miles and turn right into the Guion Farm Parking Area. Please meet your guides in the main parking lot.
