Local Permanent Orienteering Courses

We have several permanent courses set up in Puget Sound-area parks so you can try orienteering at your leisure, either on your own or with friends and family, before attending an event. It's also an easily planned outdoor activity for a Scout troop or other youth group.  Before starting out on your course you will need to know how to orient your map.  Follow the directions on this instruction page. Please notify Jim Siscel if you observe any damaged or missing markers.
