The Oak Hill area offers two distinct trails, the Oak Hill Trail, and the Plateau Trail.
Naturally, in orienteering, we aim to get off trail for some of the controls, but this event will also feature 2 courses that are all on-trail, especially designed to bridge the gap between trail runners and orienteering.
