Come out and enjoy orienteering on the varied terrain of this large riverside park. McIver State Park is a 1,600+-acre park with many miles of trails winding along the Clackamas River, near Estacada, OR. The park is very accessible, yet large enough to give participants a feeling of "getting out there." There is a nice mix of paved paths, open fields, and wooded areas. The terrain is both flat and hilly.
We use an electronic scoring and timing system known as “e-punch” Each entry or team needs to have an e-punch stick. If you don't have your own e-punch stick, you can rent one at registration for an additional $5. Using the e-punch is easy. You can learn how at the event, or read about e-punch here.
