10 mile RT with 2,000’ gain. We may see some lovely wildflowers on the Boy Scout Trail. Part of this hike will be on a single track trail, and part of it will be on a fire road. There are some lovely views from the higher areas of this hike, and the area is also loaded with deer. You will also see the weather station on the top of Whittaker Peak.
Meet outside the Towsley gate at 8:00 for an 8:15 departure to the trailhead.
Bring: lots of water and lunch. Poles are also helpful on this hike. Please share the gas with your driver. Bring your adventure pass if you have one.
To meet at the Trail head, go north on I-5. Exit Templin Hwy. Turn left. Go under the freeway and turn right on the road immediately past the freeway. Stay on this road until you see a sign on the left side that says Boy Scout Camp. You will park on the street near this drive way. There is very little parking inside, so it is advisable to remain on the street. Meet us on the street. We will walk in together to the trail head. If you meet at the trail head, please be there at 8:40. Please share the gas with your driver.
