Mini control flags are used on a two loop course. You are welcome to just do one loop, both or to do them in any order. No punching nor SI timing is used. Enjoy your own pace and enjoy the park. The terrain various from flat to steep and rocky. The forest is slightly greener in most of the white (open forest) areas of this map made in 1999. Conversely the dark green vegetation by now may be more open, but no guarantee.
For those who register for both the Owl Prowl and Fundy Mist you will be emailed a free PDF of the training course so you can print your own map ahead of your visit if you wish to guarantee one.
