The Little Pan event site is located in the rugged desert surrounding the Agua Fria River and the Black Canyon. With rocky hills and cliffs leading down to the river, the thicker desert vegetation of the area presents particular challenges to participants. The views throughout are spectacular; be sure to bring your camera. Registration for our orienteering events takes place at the Little Pan Staging Area.
