Wilderness Navigation Hike

Lost Dutchman State Park

November 17, 2018   10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Where lost and found spell the difference between dead or alive; nothing will boost your confidence in the wilderness like improving your route-finding skills.  Knowing where you are and how to find your target destination with tools ranging from nature to GPS units and maps to an orienteering compass will significantly expand your wilderness reach.  Following a 30-minute discussion, we will take a brief break then hit the trail: Trail 56 (Treasure) -58 (Jacob's Crosscut) Loop from Palo Verde Day Use Ramada.  The hike is about a mile and will be under one hour.  We will determine our location on the trail using the tools provided and the skills acquired. If you have an orienteering compass, please bring it.
