About This Activity

Event Description
Teams of 2 or solos will travel by foot throughout the vast acreage of Wawayanda State Park searching for checkpoints. You will travel along the and on trails and park roads.

The Scoop
Checkpoints are scattered in the woods over a wide area. Each control will have a point value. Teams and solos must strategize in determining which controls to go after and still make it back before the cut-off. The sweet thing is that you can do as much of the course as you like! The course will be friendly at all levels 'cos YOU pick the checkpoints to go after!
