This is our first time at New Quarter Park, so it should be fun for everyone to explore new terrain. There's a nice mix of woods, hiking trails, biking trails, open fields, and even a disc golf course. Come join us for a fun day in the park! Three courses to choose from! See below for more details.

COST: Maps are $5 each.
LOCATION: New Quarter Park at 1000 Lakeshead Dr in Williamsburg. Look for the red & white arrow orienteering signs to lead the way.
As always, instruction will be available for beginners or those who would like some help to get started. We can also offer some tips to those who've been out a few times and want to advance their skills a bit.
Bring your own compass, or borrow one of ours (on a first-come basis). Be prepared to leave car keys or an ID as a deposit when borrowing.
Dress appropriately for the weather and for travel both on & off trail. Water, sunscreen, and bug spray are also good items to bring along.
Feel free to post comments or contact one of the organizers if you have any questions!
Be sure to answer the instruction and map questions when you RSVP! This really helps us with planning.
