Weekend Map and Compass course held at the Harvard Outing Club Cabin in Pinkham Notch. If you’ve always wanted to truly learn how to use a compass, this is the course for you. We’ll cover maps, compass, navigation, and intentional bushwhacking, and will then apply these skills to hike two actual trail-less mountains. The second (Sunday) hike is optional, and entails a full day of bushwhacking — possibly finishing as late as 7:00 on Sunday evening. Participation is strongly encouraged because you’ll get to apply the skills you’ve learned.
