Welcome to Troop 658!

10 Mile Hike Coming Up on November 7

Posted by JDonerkiel on Nov 3 2020 - 4:08pm

On Saturday, 11/7/2020, the troop will host a 10-mile hike on the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail.  Participants have the option of meeting in the Colchester Shaw's parking lot at 8:30 am or meeting at the trail parking area (to be announced).  Additional information will be sent out by email and posted to the troop website later in the week.  This is a great opportunity for anyone who needs to plan and cook a meal during a hike (of at least 5 miles) or who may work on the hiking merit badge.  It's also an opportunity for scouts who need to identify plants or animal signs.  The weather outlook is excellent so take advantage if you don't have a schedule conflict.
