We will be offering the standard courses—white and yellow for beginners, orange for intermediate, red and green for advanced orienteerers. Be prepared for some water and mud—even on the white and yellow courses; the ground is very wet and soft. For the advanced courses, remember to bring your gaiters!

Driving Directions:
Take I-55 (Stevenson Expwy.) 13 miles southwest of the Loop. Exit at LaGrange Road (aka US-45, Exit 279A), and go south 5.5 miles to 107th St. Turn right and go west just over a half mile to parking the entrance to the forest preserve. Turn right and look for the orange and white orienteering signs to direct you to the registration area.

Public Transportation:
Take Pace bus #381 from the 95th Street Terminal (in the middle of the Dan Ryan Expressway) at the south end of the Red elevated line at either 8:30 a.m. or 9:30 a.m. Stay on bus to end of line at Moraine Valley Community College and walk west on 107th Street to Country Lane Woods (1-1/2 mile, on north side of street). On the return, ask someone in the parking lot to drop you at MVCC where return buses depart every 30 minutes all afternoon.
