Course Description

Land navigation skills are an essential part of safe wilderness travel. According to the National Park Service statistics, getting lost is a major contributing factor to wilderness emergencies. Not all those who wander are lost, but if you want to make it home or to another destination, it is best to spend some time honing your navigation skills.

Whether your travels keep you on the trail or takes you off the beaten path, these classes will give you the skills, ability, and confidence for your next great adventure.
