We're excited to offer another day of navigation fun at the beautiful Dead Horse Ranch State Park next to Cottonwood, Arizona. On Saturday, April 15, we're offering a 3-hour Score-O in the hills and canyons surrounding the park. The Score-O is a longer event with participants traveling to as many destinations as possible within the two-hour time limit. We get a special treat this year as the Score-O will extend into Coconino National Forest lands north of the park. The map will present some challenging navigation to avoid areas with difficult terrain.
The Score-O starts from the parking area and the end of Flycatcher Road. The event extends into Coconino National Forest north of the park.
Dead Horse Ranch State Park is located along the banks of the Verde River on the north side of Cottonwood, AZ. With abundant water and scenic mountain landscapes nearby, the park is filled with a variety of birds and mammals. Three lagoons inside the park offer visitors an opportunity for fishing. The orienteering terrain is rugged with rocky scrub forest, deep washes and ravines, cliffs, and other topographic challenges. We hope you'll take some time from your busy schedules to join us to explore the area.
