New Hampshire: Map and Compass Instructional Weekend (9/26-9/28)

September 26, 2014

Join Trail Ambassador Philip Werner for an introduction to the black art of off-trail hiking and cross-country compass navigation, including two days of hands-on practice.  If you've always wanted to learn truly 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.
