  • Group size 12 people
  • Instructor REI Specialist

Navigating in the backcountry is a cinch when you have a compass and you know how to use it! In this hands-on workshop you'll practice planning a route by taking both map and compass bearings, accounting for declination, and locating yourself on a map using triangulation. Experience reading a topographic map is strongly recommended.


    Part II of the Workshop Double Feature at Rayback on October 20th! Join REI at the Rayback to learn the basics of Compass Navigation. Register for the morning Map Reading Workshop too, and stay for lunch in between. Lunch and drinks available for purchase. Make sure to register for both parts!
