at Knob Noster State Park

Orienteering can be an important way to find your way from one spot to another, and it can also be an enjoyable outdoor sport. Orienteering is the international sport of finding one’s way through various terrain using a compass, topographical map and navigation skills. It’s easy to learn and is a fun way to exercise both the mind and body while enjoying the natural world. Orienteering can be enjoyed by people of all ages and experiences.

Special orienteering courses have been set up at Knob Noster State Park. They include a short course of 1.57 miles and a long course of 7.22 miles. Please be aware of the terrain, which can include passing through thick undergrowth.

Thanks to the efforts of the Possum Trot Orienteering Club, the park has a current orienteering map for your use. Find links to the map and coordinates for both courses on the right.
