On 11/10 at 9AM our troop will be taking a 5 mile hike through F.
Gilbert Hills in Foxboro, MA. Any Scouts interested in earning their
hiking merit badge who did not attend the Mt. Wachusetts hike should
attend this hike. If your Scout is not interested in earning the
hiking merit badge but wants to join us, or if family members and
siblings would like to attend, please join us. Transportation is
available (see below). For this hike we have invited the Webelos and
AOL dens from Pack 25 to join us.
The Scouts would like to take Wolf Meadow Trail to the Acorn Trail up
to High Rock, then over to Sunset Lake. Along the way we’ll be
looking for mysterious stone structures believed to be placed by the
Alogonquin Indian Tribe, and supposedly there is a house with creepy
statues by Sunset Lake.
The hike will take approximately 3 hours, so please bring a lunch.
