Our China Camp meet will be held late this year. All seven courses will be offered: White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, Green, Red, and Blue.
The terrain is typical of the Bay Area: relatively steep, with oak, bay, and eucalyptus forests. The lower sections have some open grassy hills that will be dry with considerable foxtails. The upper portions of the park are blessed with some redwood groves and wonderful vistas of the North Bay. There is poison oak present, but it should be a brilliant fall color of red, so you can easily avoid it. Precautions should be taken against poison oak contamination and ticks.
There are barbecue pits, toilets, and lots of picnic tables near the start/finish area, so hang around after you complete your course and have a picnic lunch with your fellow orienteers. Unfortunately, there is no public water available.
All rules pertaining to bicycles must be followed at all times. The speed limit is 15 mph with slower speeds in limited-vision areas. Bicycles must yield to all other users on the trails: equestrians, runners, orienteers, and pedestrians.
If you arrive late in the day, the lot may be full, but you may park on North San Pedro Road and walk or ride in to registration.
