Orienteering, Rogaining, Map Trekking and Adventuring in Western North Carolina

GPSO Permanent Courses
Practice and enjoy orienteering on YOUR schedule! We currently offer GPS Orienteering files and courses for select past events.
GPS Orienteering is a free Android app that you can download from the Google Play Store. You use regular map and compass to navigate between points, and the app in your pocket tracks your movement and records when you arrive within a certain distance of a “virtual control point.” It is a great way to practice orienteering without the need to set out or retrieve flags.
In the future we hope to also have traditionally installed permanent (TRIM) courses on our maps around Western North Carolina.
