Orienteering Course Glacial Blue Hills Recreation Area offers two self-guided orienteering courses. Orienteering is navigating over land using topographical map and compass.

A refundable $10.00 deposit is required for each compass checked out at the Department office. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
