Western Connecticut Orienteering Club (WCOC) is pleased to offer BYOM summer training at its Paugusset map. Course maps can be downloaded from WCOC's event site. Parking, start and finish are located at a small parking lot off Hanover Road, Newtown, CT near the Lake Lillinonah (Pond Brook) boat launch. https://maps.app.goo.gl/Tba4cmGX5WnLKsVD7

The Upper Paugusset State Forest map used to be one of WCOC’s most interesting terrain for middle-distance style courses. A 2018 storm created significant tree fall damage throughout the park, including the middle section of the map around the highest points in the terrain. The current version of the orienteering map requires substantial updates, especially with regards to vegetation changes and adding new MTB trails. We are currently evaluating how much time and resources should be used to update the map. These BYOM courses allow WCOC members to visit some of the more runnable sections of the park to get an impression of the current situation in the woods. We plan to discuss WCOC’s current map projects at the summer meeting on June 15th.

Note. This is not an organized event. Participants run the courses at their own risk.
