Orienteering

Orienteering is an art in map and compass reading and a fun way to exercise and build wilderness survival skills.  There are parks where orienteering courses are established permanently and open to use by the general public.   If you select an event where you can learn helpful hints in reading the map and compass, you will be able to take up the adventure while on vacation at another park or wilderness area.  Bring your kids and tell them they will be reading a treasure map and getting some exercise in a fun way!

Activity Description

Assuming that orienteering will include hiking for 30 minutes, one can assume that orienteering burns 204 calories.
