Orienteering 29:56 [3] 2.42 mi (12:22 / mi) +50m 11:37 / mi

So happy, sub 30 has been broken and now I realize even more is possible!

Here's how:
#1 Run the road to the wood posts, there's a trail up the steep hill, take an immediate left at the top and follow the vegetation line you will be able to see the pink from 75m.
#2 Head north keeping the bench along the trail at your left, angle down the steep hill so that you come out nearly where the trail meets the boardwalk. Follow the boardwalk to the intersection, left, to the viewing platform, right over the logs, follow trail to the 2nd game trail that it fairly obvious on the north side of the trail, just past the 2nd bend. Follow this as it winds thru low runnable game trail to the teepee. Get the tag on the back side.
#3 Up the first little northeast angling hill, you'll find another prominent game trail, that leads thru the yellow and white areas on the maps. If you stray too far east, you'll past thru the 2nd teepee and ditch area. Take the trail west about 10-15 meters to slightly hidden but promiment game trail. Follow this as it winds in to the marked game trail about 75m in, then depending on where you come out in the clearing, you should be able to see the pink. If you miss the first promiment game trail, there's a 2nd one closer to the mapped pine trees further west that also leads to the distinct mapped game trail in the clearing. There's also 3rd game trail that leads almost from the mapped pines if you really go to far west. My advice is to error west, rather than east so that you don't miss the clearing.
#4 Bust straight back south along the game trail to the main trail. Book it past the main intersection with the bench. You can see the distinctive tree from here. Continue following around to just before the next intersection with the trail that heads south. Look for a wooden structure along the ground where there are some rocks. Follow the game trail straight north to the tree.
#5. To cross the marsh or not. It is crossable if you find a lucky log or two that lays across mud and ankle deep water, but debatable which is faster. I think going east past the rock pile to the east end of the marsh where it's dry is faster. Again look for a game trail that heads down northeast to get across, that's in the middle of the trail that branches of and comes back in. Once across, the tag is better seen from the North, so head up the ridge line of the shallow hill. You can see the tag from the first dry marsh to the 2nd dry marsh. If you hit the 3rd dry marsh you went waaaay tooo far!
#6. Come back to where you crossed and immediately go up an into the entrance of the offshoot trail to the game trail that heads south. You can see the distinctive tree from here.
#7. Exit due west back to the trail, then just as the trail starts to curve back west again cut in at a game trail that starts right past the wooden structure on the ground. Again you can see the distinctive tree from here. Wind thru the dry marsh, to the west side of the tree.
#8. Push due south thru faint trail and spikey short tree crap to the trail. Come out to the intersection and follow it around south to the next intersection, which you will revisit shortly for #9. From here you can see the next trail post, the distinctive tree and also another gravel / wooden structure on the ground. Follow the prominent game trail again thru the dry marsh to the old car parts strewn about.
#9. Get back out west same way to the trail, and now put the afterburners on for a good 2 minutes remembering your previous intersection of course. Once you wind around and begin to see the clearing, you'll see 2 birdhouses. Aim for those and pickup a faint game trail that heads east into the clearing. The tag will be behind the 2nd set of bushes that form a bit of an island.
#10. Take the faint game trail due west across the trail, where it turns to distinct trail and into the woods. You'll come out near the hiking trails, immediately turn south and look at all the glorious open runnable woods. As it starts to go uphill, take a mid level approach. Once you crest the top of the last hill, you'll see the ditch and look for downed trees. The tag is visible from the top of the hill depending on which trees are blocking your view.
Finish. Angle southwest along the hill side back to the trail, rather than busting straight up over the hill, I think it's faster to go to the trail. Once you clear the side of the hill, you can see the gate and that glorious boulder finish. Sprint! Go! Forget you have memorized this!
