Hiking Tip




From the top of the ridge you can see your car at the trailhead far below. Do you take a compass bearing and try to hold to it as you scramble down through dense forest? If you drift off your bearing, even slightly, you could miss the trailhead and wind up lost in the forest. By "Aiming Off" you could deliberately choose to take a bearing that will intersect the road then walk to the trailhead and your car.
