10-mile Hike – Sunday, Feb. 26th

There is a 10-mile hike scheduled for Sunday, February 26th. This hike will take us to Medina County, near Chippewa Lake. We will be hiking the Chippewa Inlet Trail, trails in Buckeye Woods Park, along with the wooded trails in the nearby Schleman Nature Preserve. The Inlet trail follows the Chippewa Inlet stream, so the terrain is pretty level.

We are asking that you please sign up on TroopWebHost so we know who is planning to attend. We will be meeting near the baseball fields at Buckeye Woods Park ( 6335 Wedgewood Road, Medina, OH 44256 ). Please arrive by 9:00 AM so that we can get the hike started on time. Our goal is to finish the hike, and be back at the parking lots, around 2:30 PM.

All Scouts in Troop 701 are welcome to participate in the hike. However, please keep in mind that hikes of this length demand endurance and physical fitness. All miles hiked count towards your Boot Club awards!

Remember to carry a full daypack with two quarts of water, trail snacks and a lunch, rain gear, spare socks and gloves, and other essentials. As for clothing, it is best to dress in layers, so that you can remove some while hiking if you become too warm. Don’t forget to also wear a stocking cap and warm gloves. Please wear comfortable hiking footwear and hiking socks as well, as the trails may be muddy. It is recommended that you bring a plastic bag to put your muddy boots in before you get in your car to go home.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We hope you will be able to join us!
