About the Adventure
Activity Level 2: Moderate Guides: Joe and Lindsay Introduction to Hiking Series This series of hikes has been designed for those who are new to hiking and those who want to learn a little more about what can help to make the hiking experience more rewarding. Each hike will increase in length and amount of vertical gain. Sign up for all four or pick and choose the hikes that appeal to you. Hike #3: Hiking and Basic Navigation Hike number three takes us to the Montour Woods Conservation area in Coraopolis. On this hike you will learn basic map and compass skills so you can orient yourself and a map to true north. Next, you'll learn how to determine where you are on the map. Finally, we'll utilize the compass and map to navigate to a specific location. We’ll also look at the value of hiking apps that you may want to use. The hike will cover 5.0 – 6.0 miles of beautiful trails and ascend up to 620 feet. This adventure is a blend of hiking and instruction meant to help you with your navigation skills. It's led by Joe, friend of the WAC. Joe has worked in the outdoor industry for a long time and is a gear expert, having worked at REI for many years. He has taught a variety of classes regarding navigation using a map and compass. If you've been wanting to get out for hikes but are feeling unsure about your navigation skills... Hike No. 3 is for you!
