Hello Pack 722,

This Saturday July 13 is the Skyline Trail Hike......the trail is a 7 mile hike in the Fellsway woods (all off road) with elevation changes in the terrain.   There are no bathrooms, so digging cat holes would be our only course of action (been there, done that on this hike......just ask my oldest) and there are no places to replenish water bottles (carrying potable water for entire hike).  Also, the weather for Saturday is sunny and 89  Class A uniforms are mandatory because this is a historical hike.

Its been said before but I'll say it again,  this hike isn't intended for the younger Scouts.   They have their hiking opportunities during our Town Forest cleanup hikes and will have an opportunity to complete longer hikes when they are older.

We will be stopping approximately half way through the hike to eat.  

Due to the length of the hike (4.5-6 hours), we will meet promptly at 8am.   The meeting spot is a dirt pull off, on South Border Road (right side heading to Winchester), across from Governors Ave in Medford (this is very near Lawrence Memorial Hospital).    If for some reason there is a larger than expected turnout, we would meet at the Sheepfold parking area which opens at 9am and is located off the Fellsway west (Route 28 adjacent to Route I-93).  This is where the dog park is located.  We will send word to those attending if we switch the meeting spot.

Please respond to this email if you will be joining us with a contact number so that we know who we can be expecting.
