Finding Your Way

Have you ever hiked to the top of one of our beautiful mountains and wondered what mountain peak that was off in the distance or what city that was down below? Are you planning a trip and you'd like to know what topographic map you'll need to bring along or what things you might see along the way? You'll find the answers to these questions and many more by visiting our Navigation Page. Please note that students are required to obtain a compass for the navigational aspects of the class. In order to make a compass purchase easier on you, students in WTC may purchase a Suunto MC-2 compass at a reduced cost of $ during the on-line application process. The compass can also be purchased at the time of the class if there are any still available. Click here to find out more about the Suunto MC-2 compass.
