Wilburton Hill Park combines two trail networks and two campuses in a single, mostly wooded venue…with a secret large suspension bridge hidden in it. And because it’s built on a hillside, you get a full workout exploring the venue.

  3. Introduction-Orienteering Permanent Course at Wilburton Hill Park

CascadeOC supports many permanent courses over a large geographic area and our volunteers have limited time to keep up with maintenance. If you observe any damaged, obscured, or missing markers, or if you can help regularly monitor and maintain this permanent course, please let us know. Thanks for your help!

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

The permanent orienteering courses at Wilburton Park were designed and installed by Elizabeth Beck as an International School Senior Project.

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: 4

Trail networks, while not entirely linear, are relatively uncomplicated and easy to navigate. But you do have to pay attention.

Physical Challenge Rating: 4

All trails afford easy footing, except for the occasional toe-catching root growing across the trail. But a large portion of the map is on a hill, and therefore requires some climbing and descent.
