Marblehead Hike - Saturday August 3rd

Hello Pack 722,

This Saturday August 3 is the Marblehead Hike......the trail is a 6 mile hike along pavement through historical Marblehead and finishes in Salem.   We are not sure what the bathroom options will be during this hike (anticipate none for at least the first 3 miles) and there are no places to replenish water bottles (carrying potable water for entire hike).  Also, the weather for Saturday  morning is sunny and 86  Class A uniforms are mandatory because this is a historical hike.

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

Due to the length of the hike (4.5-6 hours), we will meet promptly at 8:15 am.   The meeting spot is in the long term parking lot at New Liberty St. and Essex St in Salem.  It is across from Peabody Essex Museum and East India Square Mall.  Once all have arrived, we will carpool to the start in Marblehead.  

If you plan on attending, please reach out to Mark Pothier via text with your name as well as email address to 781-454-8214.  He will be organizing the event.

Your Pack Committee
