A short description of Orienteering!

A fun, challenging outdoor navigation activity using map and compass, along trails, cross-country, or a combination of both.  Events are held in the wild, in city parks, anywhere outdoors.  Each event has several levels of difficulty: from a fun family walk, to a challenging cross-country hike, to a competitive running sport.
