Baird Creek Preservation Foundation Orienteering Course

What is Orienteering?

  • Orienteering is a group of sports that require navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain whilst moving at a fast pace with the goal of completing the course with the lowest elapsed time. Baird Creek is happy to announce the addition of an orienteering course on the trails by Christa McAuliffe Park!
