Description:Two courses available: easier and harder.

The easier course will stay closer to the Start/Finish area and have most of its controls located on or near the many trails in the park. It will have a few tougher ones thrown in to make it interesting. The harder course will range through more of the park and will only share a few controls with the easier course.

A "Rogaine" is an "orienteering treasure hunt". There is no set course to follow. Controls are scattered throughout the mapped area and participants have a fixed time interval (90 or 180 minutes) to find as many controls as possible in whatever order they choose before returning to the start/finish area.

Points are awarded for each control based on difficulty and/or distance from the start area. Points are deducted for participants who return to the start area after their time limit expires.
