Discussion: Pontiac Lake Virtual O

I have also created a Virtual O at Pontiac Lake, starting from the Horseman's Campground, off MaceDay Rd. Same idea as Maybury.
No flags, no streamers, download the Usynligo app, print the map, run the course, app will advise you when near the control, captures your splits. (And if you choose to enable the setting under your profile called Store Trace, you can export a .gpx file for import to Livelox.)

Search Pontiac Lake Virtual O:

White - 2.8k, All On Trail, 1:5000. No prior experience necessary.
Yellow - 3.8k, Controls just off trail, 1:7500. Beginner.
Orange - 4.8k, Controls on large features off trail, 1:10000. Intermediate.
Green - 5.8k, Controls on small features off trail, 1:10000. Advanced Short.
Red - 7.3k, Controls on small features off trail, 1:10000. Advanced Long.

(White, Yellow normal difficulty. Orange, by just a bit and Green / Red, harder than normal for extra training value :)

For some reason when I pull up the Red course it loads the White course map in Livelox. Trying to enter my route from today.

Was advised the park closed the road into the start/finish at Teggerdine, so have to walk / bike in or get creative on where to park

Yep, I had to park on NE corner of the area and then walk in to the start.

Yes, until park reopens the park road, park at the corner of Maceday Lake/Cross Rd, there is a pull off just before the bend in the road. From that point it's 900m to the S/F. Gives you a little warm up I guess :),-83.450...

Just downloaded the app and hoping to get out there this weekend.

I was finally able to get out and give the white course a try. For someone new to navigating, it was great for practicing how to measure distances and measure pace. Thank you for setting this up!
