Topics: hiking & climbing sports & recreation

Orienteering is the sport of using nothing but a compass and map to locate points on a course that has been laid out in the woods. Competitors race the clock to locate the checkpoints, and then return to the starting point. It can be competitive or just a nice walk in the woods. It's a sport that is popular throughout the world. Host Marianne Eaton joins members of the Green Mountain Orienteering Club on one of their outings and navigates her way through the wilderness.
