Cub Scout Pack 1776

January Briones Hike recap

Thank you to all the Scouts who made it to our Pack Hike at Briones Regional Park. The Scouts hiked up the Deer Creek Trail and back down along the Abrigo Valley Trail. The total trip was about four miles long. Patches will be handed out at a future Pack Meeting. Parents should check their son's handbook as the hike may qualify for advancement toward accomplishments like the Hiking Belt Loop. We hope to see even more Scouts at our next hike on February 9th. An Evite will be sent and hike information will be posted here next month.
