We will be hiking the council’s 1904 World’s Fair trail in Forest Park Saturday November 1st. This will be about 10 miles and will qualify as one of the hikes for the hiking merit badge. Mr. Miller will be teaching the hiking MB at the 10/23/14 troop meeting.
We will meet at the parking lot of the Dwight Davis tennis center in Forest Park – please see map below. The hike will begin at approximately 9:00 am. It should take us around 5-7 hours depending on how fast we hike. We will be hiking with some Webelos from various packs on on Saturday. Please make sure you are prepared and are bringing the essentials for a hiking trip. This will be in an urban area so the need for wilderness survival skills/gear will be minimal. Make sure you bring a sack lunch! We will be eating along the trail somewhere. If you complete the entire trail you will be eligible to receive a nifty patch.
Please let Mr. Barnes know if you have any questions
