Portola Valley & Woodside, California

Point Reyes Backpacking – Jan 5-6

Troop 64 at Alamere Falls, December 2016

Our next trip is our annual backpacking trip at Point Reyes on Saturday to Sunday, January 5 and 6. We’ll leave Portola Valley  Saturday morning and return home around 4 pm on Sunday. The hike in to Wildcat Camp is 5.5 miles with a few hundred feet of elevation gain; the hike back, partly on the beach, is a little shorter, and will go up Alamere Falls.

There are many opportunities to complete requirements for ranks and merit badges, including a 5-mile hike with map and compass, selecting a campsite and setting up a tent, and cooking for ranks and MBs. This is a great backpacking trip for first-timers as well as veterans. This is a great time to get away to the quiet and beauty of the Point Reyes backcountry.

There is a group os Scouts signed up, so let Kirt know if you also wish to go  Scouts’ parents are welcome. Go to calendar page for this event for more information, the trip plan, and to contact Kirt.
