Philmont Training Hike – Sunday, April 24th

On Sunday, April 24, 2022, at 9:00 AM, we will have our next Philmont training hike – a 12-mile trek. All Scouts in Troop 701 are welcome to participate in the hike, especially those working on the Hiking Merit Badge. However, please keep in mind that hikes of this length demand endurance and physical fitness. These hiking miles will also count towards Boot Club awards! The hike will depart from, and end at, the Bridal Veil Falls parking lot just off of George Parkway in Walton Hills, Ohio. Turn-by-turn driving directions are available here (just type in your starting location): Pickup time is estimated at 2:00 PM. Please sign up on TroopWebHost if you are planning to attend.

Remember to carry a full daypack with two quarts of water, a lunch, trail snacks, rain gear, and don’t forget to dress for the weather. Please wear comfortable hiking footwear and hiking socks as well, as portions of 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!
