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.


This is part 2 of 2. Please use the link below for the required prerequisite, part 1: Map Reading. There will be a 30min break between programs for lunch.
