This meet will offer standard Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced courses. You can find an explanation of the orienteering course color scheme at our FAQs page.
The Beginner course (Yellow) will be suitable for beginners of all ages -- kids, adults, families, etc.
Note: Both the canal to the north and Bear Creek itself will most likely be uncrossable. All courses with water crossings should be crossed on bridges. Purple overprint is used to highlight these. A few controls are close to Bear Creek; make sure you are on the right side of the river before you start the leg.
