Topanga State Park

October 18, 2015

Topanga State Park features open natural grass areas, oak woodland, and trail networks through dense chapparal. Join us as we kick off the 2015-2016 COOL League season with old fashioned point-to-point orienteering.

Course Setter's Notes are now added below. There will be only one advanced course. Everyone who registered for Brown, Green, or Red will be assigned to this course.

No registrations will be accepted on the day of the event.

There is a $10.00 parking fee or free street parking available along the park entrance roads.

Course Setter's Notes
Four point-to-point courses:
White, 10 controls
Yellow, 11 controls
Orange, 13 controls
Green (Shorter Advanced), 15 controls

Trippett Ranch, Topanga SP, is a compact venue of rolling hills, poison oak in some drainages (no controls), fierce chaparral patches and, hopefully, a break from sweltering weather this Sunday. Fun, as usual, is guaranteed. The picnic area from which we Start and Finish, is an oak-shaded meadow suitable for relaxation post-mortems. While there is an entrance fee to the Park lot, there is limited (free) shoulder parking along Entrada Rd.
