Ponderosa Park Meet August 12th

Ponderosa Park Meet - August 12th

Sunday Aug. 12 Ponderosa State Park starts from 11-1pm.  
Classic style with three courses: 
Novice 2.5km
Intermediate 3.5 km,
Advanced 7.4km.  
Course stats may change. 

The start and finish will be at the overflow parking area to the right across from the entrance to the main camping area on the peninsula just before the peninsula gate, about .75 miles past the entrance kiosk.  Participants will need an Idaho State park pass or pay the $5 per vehicle park entrance fee.  John Murray has worked hard on updating the map using LiDar contours which will be a big improvement over the old map.  Field checking is incomplete however especially with respect to vegetation mapping.  The advanced course will explore the previously unused north part of the park.  E-punch will not be used.

Please RSVP so I’ll have an idea how many maps to print.

Note that there is a big UTV event going on that weekend in McCall so lodging will be tight.  People are welcome to camp at my house if they’d like.

Start location coordinates:
Decimal degrees: 44.931465, -116.080602 or
