Event date and time
June 5, 2021 - 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM

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.
