Nakkertok Event - September 13

We are very happy to be hosting our first meet of the year at Nakkertok South. The event will be following Orienteering Canada’s COVID-19 procedures and public health guidelines to keep everyone safe. We hope you’ll come out to enjoy physical distancing at its best, in the forest and finding flags. Please thoroughly read Orienteering Ottawa’s COVID-19 event modifications. https://ottawaoc.ca/index.php/events/covid-19-event-modifications.

Nakkertok’s terrain is lovely, deciduous forest which is fairly open offering good runability with a dense trail network adding many extra route choice options. Some areas contain intricate combination of knolls, cliffs, and boulders adding an extra challenge. Be aware of various indistinct trails that are used as snowshoe trails in the winter but are less visible in the summer. These are not mapped.
