Long Description:
"The course allows visitors to test their map and compass skill while enjoying hiking the trails around Kennedy Pond. The course lengths will vary, but the average course will be for ¼ to 1½ mile in length. The orienteering course is marked by 4×4 posts placed at trail intersections in the conservation area. Each post is marked with a unique symbol.

Visitors follow the course directions to plot a course along the trails using compass bearings and distance to locate the course posts in order. If the directions are followed accurately, the order you find the posts will match the “answer key” on the brochure.

Courses start from either the Trailside Way or Texas Road parking areas and copies of the brochures can be found at the trailhead kiosks. A practice course is also provided around the perimeter of the Trailside Way parking lot to get you started."
