Registration is required for this activity.

Overview

Weekend Map and Compass course held at the Harvard Outing Club Cabin in Pinkham Notch. If you've always wanted to truly learn how to use a compass, this is the course for you. We'll cover maps, compass, navigation and intentional bushwhacking, and will then apply these skills to hike two actual trail-less mountains. The second (Sunday) hike is optional, and entails a full day of bushwhacking -- possibly finishing as late as 7:00 on Sunday evening. Participation is strongly encouraged because you'll get to apply the skills you've learned. Registration for the course will close on Tuesday, September 24.
