RSVP NEEDED - Saturday, July 10th - 8:00 AM - Isaac Davis Historic Trail, Acton to Concord

Please respond to Geoff by email by Friday the 9th @ 5pm if you plan on going.  We need to make sure we have enough shuttles from the beginning to the end.

The Isaac Davis Trail (Historic Trail - Acton and Concord, MA).  This is a great hike for older scouts or those that are experienced with longer trails.

This is a  7 mile  trail that runs between Acton and the North Bridge in Concord. This is the same trail that the Acton Minutemen followed to fight the British Red Coats on April 18-19, 1775 in the Battle of Concord. Scouts and Scouters will earn the special hiking patch by completing this hike, shown below.

We will meet at 8AM at the parking lot adjacent to the TJ O'Grady Skateboard Park in Acton and walk over to the start of the trail at the Isaac Davis House along Hayward Road.  From there, we will make our way through Acton and Concord to North Bridge.  This hike is primarily alongside roads with a portion along a town easement through the woods.  There will be limited (if any) bathrooms along the trail.

Weather looks decent with highs in the upper 70s and a slight chance of showers. Come prepared with good walking shoes, sun protection, water and snacks -- think Cub Scout 6 Essentials.  Plan on the hike taking 3-4 hours not including the shuttling back to the starting point.

Yours in Scout,

Your Pack Committee
