  • Group size: 10
  • 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.


This program is the second session to a series. Participants are HIGHLY encouraged to take Map Reading Workshop as a precursor. Many elements in this course require map reading knowledge.
