Description: Join the ABWF on the Beartooth Plateau to learn route-finding skills while hiking off trail. We will teach and practice identifying features on maps like peaks, drainages, noses, and saddles, while also learning how to use triangulation to identify one’s exact location. Finally, we will shoot some bearings for those times when visibility is limited or the forest is thick. If those skills mean nothing to you yet, or if you want to fine-tune your skills, meet us in the high country for this workshop.

We will hike around 5 miles total during this clinic. However, folks of all hiking abilities are invited to join us, because we can do a lot of the teaching from the parking lot or close to it.

Meeting place and time: 10am on the Beartooth Pass pullout parking lot on July 12th. We will caravan together to a nearby trailhead and get started.

Covid-19 Considerations: We will keep our group size to 6 people. Each person will use their own compass, provided by the ABWF and sanitized pre-use. While viewing the same map for demonstration, teachers and learners will be asked to wear masks. We will maintain six feet of distance while hiking from folks we did not arrive with. We will also be in touch with attendees during the days leading up to the hike to ensure they are not experiencing any related symptoms.
