Note: Samples of the map are provided here for educational purposes only; the map shown here is not kept up-to-date. The course shown is a Beginner/Intermediate course, and actual controls do not exist in the terrain.

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: 2/10

Robinswood Park is a beginner-friendly city park, with a mix of open fields and well-groomed trails in a small forest. Navigation decisions are generally limited to which trail routes to take.

Physical Challenge Rating: 2/10

Robinswood is relatively flat, with only one hill of any note. Since little off-trail travel is possible, there is little to hinder full-speed running.
