Compass Course along the Stu Kuyper Trail

Looking for something fun to do outdoors?  Try out the compass course along the Stu Kuyper Nature Trail!  The course starts by trail marker #2E (look for the sign).  All you need is an orienteering compass (available in many stores by the sporting goods/camping supplies) and some basic knowledge.  If you're new to the sport, check out the compass basics on this page.  A map of the course is also available.  Watch for the compass course markers (symbols with orange/white triangles on them) along the route - they will give you your bearing and distance information at each stop along the way.  This course was made possible by an Eagle Scout service project with Boy Scout Troop 373.
