Come on out and hike with the troop this Sunday – we will be hiking up Echo Mountain. This is the classic Troop 355 training hike – it is a 5.2 miles round trip, and it provides a great workout with over 1300 feet of elevation gain. We will spend some time at the Echo lookout, enjoying the views and the old railway and hotel ruins, then hike back down to the trailhead. All scouts and parents are welcome on this hike – this is a great hike for both experienced and newer scouts. If you have not yet had the chance to get the Second Class 5 mile hike signoff, this will be a great opportunity to do that. Bring your 10 essentials plus your scout handbook for the signoffs. Most importantly, please do not forget to bring 1-2 liters of water.
We will meet at 6:55 a.m. at the top of Lake Street in Altadena, where Lake meets Loma Alta – we will be gathering at the stone gate on the east side of the street. Please note that this trail gets busy on the weekends; you may need to park a block or two away. We will be finished between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m.
