The Trail to 1st Class camping trip will be in near by Portola Redwood State park in the Santa Cruz Mountains this weekend April 20-22. The campground is only 40 minutes from Corte Madera school so is very convenient to set up Friday evening. A sign up sheet will be sent through Teamsnap or you can go to the signup link on the Calendar page. We will spend time on planning for the camp out at this weeks Troop meeting on Wednesday so please attend.
The campground has upgrade facilities since last year with great opportunities for hiking. It will be an ideal and fun place to complete achievements towards your next rank. Please plan on attending. It is chance for older and higher ranking scouts to help give back to the Troop by helping their newer Troop members gain achievements. Updated information on the trip will be posted soon so please check back for updates.
The 2,800-acre park is situated in the craggy, rough terrain of a deep canyon. Located within the populous San Francisco Bay area, Portola Redwoods offers a hushed getaway from suburban bustle. First- and second-growth coast redwoods stand tall among thick ferns and redwood sorrel in gullies and on north slopes. The park’s high ridges and southfacing slopes are covered by Douglas-fir and live oaks.
