DVOA welcomes you to the 2001 Frontier Festival A event. This region of Pennsylvania has been rich in Orienteering history since the US Championships were held here in 1982.

Daniel Boone Homestead is an area originally mapped in the summers of 1989 and 1990 by three DVOA juniors as a part of the Olympic grants that were then available. It was used for local events for a number of years, but as trails and vegetation changed, the area was abandoned as a DVOA venue. The updated map was done by Alexei Zuev and Vladimir Zherdev in January 2000. It is 1:10000 with 2.5 meter contours.

French Creek West was used for orienteering by DVOA in an improved USGS form before the days of color maps. In 1982 the area was mapped to Orienteering standards in a color version, and used for the US Champs and again in April of 1984 for the Mid Atlantic Championships. The map has been updated several times over the ensuing years. The latest, and first digitized version, by Alexei Zuev and Vladimir Zherdev in January 2001. The map is a 1:15000 with 5 meter contour intervals.
