Map & Compass Backcountry Hike



abandon the apps and brush up on your map & compass skills

Are you ready for a challenge?

Here’s a program that will get you plenty of off-trail exercise, thoroughly lost and soaked up to your knees, all the while honing those often-neglecting map, compass and GPS unit skills!

To accomplish our goal, we’ll be exploring some off-trail areas of Big Creek Park, setting a course and navigating from point to point.

This will be a fairly strenuous hike with some good changes in elevation as we head into and out of the Big Creek valley.

Registration is required at or 440-286-9516, which you may also call with questions.

Geauga Park District is online at, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
