We have another day of navigation fun planned for our Sophie's Flat event site near Wickenburg. On Saturday, March 12, we're presenting a 1.5-hour and a 3-hour Score-O from the trailhead parking. Participants looking for a shorter day can try their luck navigating for 1.5 hours. Those looking for more navigation challenges can stay out for 3 hours. Both events use the same basemap. Sophie's Flat is an excellent example of high-desert vegetation nestled in the foothills of the Bradshaw Mountains. We hope you'll consider joining us for a great weekend of navigation fun.

The terrain is a mixture of rocky outcroppings and rolling hills with a medium level of desert vegetation. While the desert fauna in some areas is sparse and runnable, other areas have a higher concentration of prickly plants to navigate through. On almost all parts of the map, terrain visibility is excellent. Water is available at the timer's table, but we won't have water on the course. Please bring your own water bottle or camelback.
