    I don't know the coordinates, as I don't have a GPS, and am old fashioned enough that I still rely on something called a "map".  

    The park is just off of Pa Route 233, about 15 miles north of exit 37 of I-81, west of Carlisle.  To those who have been to the Kings Gap or Pine Grove Furnace (location of this fall's Susquehanna Stumble) maps, you get off at the same exit, but go north instead of south.  That may not be the best way to get to the park for some.  Another way of travel is to go around to the north of Harrisburg and take Routes 22-322 west towards State College, but getting off at the Newport exit and going on Pa. Routes 34, 274 and 233, approching the park from the north.  A third way involves going around to the north of Harrisburg on I-81, heading southbound, and getting off at exit 65, going north on Rts. 11-15 for a couple of miles and turning left onto Pa Route 850, and following it until it intersects with  Rt. 233 in Landisburg, which you take sountbound about 8 miles to the park.  I would be interested to learn which the computers think is the best way to get to the park.

    One update - we have just learned that the large parking lot next to pavilion where registration, start and finish are located has been closed by the park a few days ago.  Most parking will will be located about a quarter mile from the pavilion. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

    There is a small lake between the pavilion and the new parking area where swimming is permitted.  Since the current weather forecast predicts a hot Sunday, people may want to bring their swimsuits.  The water in the lake is always cold.

    Google maps likes   40.2758  x  77.4237.  I've only been there a couple times and never recorded the coordinates.  If these are good I can add them to the map data page.

    A pair of VJ Falcon orienteering shoes was left at the Col. Denning event yesterday.  If they are yours, you can arrange to get them back by contacting Julie Keim through the SVO website.

    Two months later, I still have the pair of shoes mentioned above. Surely someone is missing these?
