The course was designed for training and testing the cross country navigation skills for the California Search and Rescue team. The course covers 12 separate segments with a range of search and rescue related field problems including: cross country navigation, point location, distance and directional problems. The course zig-zags up and down and all around the area, and while the total distance traveled is less than 10 miles, it normally takes up to two days to complete because of the extreme terrain and the nature of the problems.
