North Country Orienteering is holding a scavenger hunt event in South Hammond State Forest. Flags will be hung in the forest and indicated on a detailed topographic map with some land features marked. Using only that map and a compass, find as many flags in the allotted time: 3, 6 or 9 hours. We are schedule- and pandemic-friendly: Arrive at any time on or after 7 am, study the map for as long as you want, and begin when you are ready. No mass start. You can be competitive or just enjoy a hike in the woods. This is a great way to explore North Country terrain off-trail. If you are new to orienteering, we can provide a quick tutorial before you start. Details are located at our website: www.northcountryorienteering.org.
