The Spring backpacking trip fast approaches! We’ll be backpacking 50 miles on the Appalachian Trail from New Jersey into New York. The crew sets our very early the morning of Wednesday, April 8 and will be back the night of Saturday, April 11.

Highlights of the trip will include crossing the Hudson on a hiking-only bridge (longest on the AT), walking through one of the best built trails in the US according to Backpacker Magazine, snagging views of Manhattan from Bear Mountain, and backpacking through the middle of a zoo. That’s right, a zoo. It should an awesome time!

Cost is $10 per Scout. Scouts are expected to provide three dehydrated meals for dinner. If you have not done a 50 miler before, please talk to Mike before signing up!
