Back Country Navigation with Gaia GPS app for Smartphones
Date and Time
Saturday, July 7, 2018 - Sunday, July 8, 2018
AMC Highland Center, Crawford Notch,
New Hampshire, White Mountains,
Registration is required for this activity.
Increase your confidence and ability to use the Gaia GPS app for smartphones to explore terrain and navigate off trail. Learn how to record tracks and waypoints. Improve your map and compass skills, and become familiar with how these skills dovetail with your use of a GPS device. Learn how to make your own high-quality maps using free, online tools. And apply these skills as you bushwhack to trailess peak.
Hiking off-trail is more difficult and physically demanding than hiking to trailed peaks. Thus, participants signing up for this workshop must have good stamina and current hiking fitness, able to hike 6+ miles, with a pack, over difficult terrain.
Beth Zimmer enjoys teaching the joy and art of navigation (GPS, bushwhacking, and Map & Compass) to others. She is Co-Chair for the AMC NH Excursions' Committee. Beth has completed the NEHH, NH200 and in Fall 2017 she completed her "Redline."
