Event Description:

Orienteering is a navigation race. This is not the compass and pace exercise you did in Scouts! Instead, you are given a detailed topo map with pre-marked checkpoints. You chose the best route between checkpoints: there is no pre-determined route. Can you think and read the map on the run? Participants start at staggered time and the fastest elapsed time wins. You can also enjoy this as a casual hike, perfect for first-timers or families. This is a great way to get the kids outdoors and using a paper map (gasp!) instead of staring at a screen.

What to Bring: Wear clothing that can get wet or dirty (trails are often muddy). A change of shoes and socks is recommended for after the event.

Event Description:

All tools will be provided by Manhattan Trail Works and Kansas Trails Council

Trail work is exactly what it sounds like, its outside work... And nature will inevitably get on you. Dress comfortably but ready to get a bit dirty, know that you could get sun burnt, stung by a bee or brush up against some poison ivy. We have eye protection and ear protection if you end up running a weed whip or chain saw.
And per the usual we will have some food and cold beverages for those who come and help improve our trails!
