We will head down toward the beach after enjoying the spectacular ocean views. Each family can decide to stay on the beach and play in the sand or choose to visit the Nike Missile Site and/or Point Bonita Lighthouse, both of which are short drives from the beach and are open to the public at 12:30pm.  The Marine  Mammal Center is also close by, admission free, and educational for scouts.

This hike will count as one of the qualifying events toward the National SummerTime Award. Details about other qualifying events to earn this award will be posted at a later date.
