Long Description:
Nineteen controls can be done in any order as it's a rogaine. The start triangle is the "kiosk" near the main lake.

The map has been put together by Rob Newbrook from Taranaki Orienteering. The map is a PDF document on the Club website, and the controls are a MS Word document downloadable from the same.

Previously the Egmont Orienteering Club (Same - just renamed) placed control posts throughout the park. They are still in place.
Difficulty level: Easy, follows well formed tracks for the most part

Course length: 3 km

Course Climb: 30m
