Five Ponds Orienteering Course

The permanent Five Ponds Orienteering Course is located in the southeast portion of White Memorial, east of Route 63. The course contains 15 different terrain features, each marked by two red and white rectangles attached to opposite sides of a tree. These “trim” control markers verify that you have found the particular feature you intended to navigate to. Use the orienteering map (seen below) available for purchase at the Museum Gift Shop and a compass to navigate from point to point. The course does not stay on a maintained trail, so wear pants, good trekking shoes, and bring insect/tick spray.
