Freedom Trail Hike

Hello, Pack 722!

On August 13th, at 10:00 am, the Pack will be hiking the Freedom Trail starting at the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown and ending in Boston Common. There is parking in front of Whole Foods near the T entrance about 4 blocks from the Bunker Hill Monument. This is a 2.5 mile hike through mostly flat neighborhoods. Click here for information on the Freedom Trail or visit this website

There are many historical sites along the trail that we can visit if the scouts are up for it, however, it may take a long time to tour all of the sites. I would like to keep the hike to around 2 hours max. I'm thinking that maybe we can tour 1 or 2 of the most important sites along the way. Let me know your thoughts in this form:

I plan to picnic on Boston Common after the hike but feel free to head back or get lunch elsewhere. After lunch, the easiest thing for everyone to do is take the T back to Charlestown where you parked. The shutdown on the Orange line do not start until the 19th. 

This is a historical trail so there is a special patch that you will get for hiking it.
