In orienteering, you use a map - and sometimes a compass – to locate a series of points shown on a specialized map. Each point or “control” is marked in the terrain by a white and red sign. In order to prove that you have visited a control, you use a punch hanging from the sign to mark your control card. On the orienteering map (scale 1:7,500 [1 cm = 75 m]) the controls are marked by red circles and numbered in the order they are to be visited.
There are 3 orienteering courses to choose from:
blue – easy – 2.1K “as the crow flies” – 12 controls
red – moderate – 3.1K “as the crow flies” – 17 controls
black – difficult – 4.4K “as the crow flies” – 24 controls
Brochure „Orienteering“ with information, instructions and map with permanent orienteering course available at the St. Johann in Tirol region tourist offices.
The start and end points are located at the southern end of the parking lot in front of the swimming pool Bichlachbad, opposite the info panel (Alfons-Walde-Weg 4, 6372 Oberndorf).
