Permanent Courses

BAOC has a few "trim" orienteering courses—practice courses that have permanent markers. This means you can print or purchase a map, and do the course on your own at any time.

If you print a map yourself, keep in mind that you might end up with a map scale that is different than what is stated on the map.

BAOC has permanent courses in the following locations:

In addition, there's a master map (408KB) that shows all the controls without a prescribed course. You can use this map to create your own course, or perhaps to practice doing a Score-O.

These permanent courses were created in 2010 by Philipp Kopisch as an Eagle Scout Project for Boy Scout Troop 109. A note from Philipp is here. The courses were made possible with support from the Bay Area Orienteering Club, the City of Menlo Park, the Friends of Bedwell Bayfront Park, and many members of Troop 109.
Note: The courses start at the Alhambra Creek Valley Entrance on the northeast side of the park.
Comments on the courses are available here.
Note: The courses start at the Sutherland Dr entrance on the southwest side of the park.

In addition, there's an All Controls map (870KB) that shows all the controls without a prescribed course. You can use this map to create your own course, or perhaps to practice doing a Score-O.
