GetHiking! Gear Clinic

Join us for the second of our monthly gear clinics.  This month, we'll be giving a map and compass clinic.  We want you to find you way if you go out without the group, or if you get separated, so we'll go over how to read a map as well as basic compass skills.  If you already have a compass, bring it along, and you'll be able to practice any navigation skills that might have gotten rusty this winter.

We'll also be discussing the location of our "hiker's choice" hike for April.  So even if you're an expert at orienteering, there will be something for you!

If all that isn't enough to convince you to come, maybe this is: refreshments will be provided by our friends at Olde Mecklenberg Brewery.  Hope to see everyone there!

      If you guys would like to practice your new found skills, there are orienteering courses at Crowders Mountain, Boyce Park, and Latta Plantation.
