Lynndale Park is a 1:4,000-scale map with a lot happening in it. You’ll find rolling hills, runnable forest, and a complex trail network bounded by open areas with buildings. This is where the school league training is held each fall.

  3. Introduction-Orienteering Permanent Course at Lynndale Park

CascadeOC supports many permanent courses over a large geographic area. This makes it challenging for our volunteers to keep up with maintenance and information on their condition. If you observe any damaged, obscured, or missing markers, please notify Thomas Lanphear.

To find more venues with permanent courses, visit the Map of Maps page, where each permanent course is marked by a yellow pin.

Note: This sample of the map is provided here for educational purposes only; the map shown here is not kept up-to-date.

The purpose of providing these navigational and physical ratings below is to provide greater context for how challenging an orienteering course at this venue might be. For example, an advanced-level course at a local city park will be easier to complete than an advanced-level course in the mountains.

Navigational Challenge Rating: 5

The trail network here earns this park its “5” rating for navigation. A plethora of intersections and curving, twisting trails can have you checking your compass, retracing your steps, or at the very least triple-checking your surroundings when deep in the woods. Especially when we have a Night-O event here!

Physical Challenge Rating: 4

This park has one large hill that covers the entire width of the park, but other than that, this is gently rolling terrain. Footing is generally quite good, except on some of the steeper trails at the north end.
