This Saturday morning we will hike up Echo Mountain, a resort ruins 2.75 miles above Pasadena. This is a classic San Gabrel Mountain hike, not to hard, and fun.
Trailhead: The top of Lake Avenue (crosstreet E Loma Alta Dr)
Distance: 5.5 miles
Start Time: 7:00 a.m.
Finish: Approx. 10:00 a.m.
Bring 1 liter of water and high carbohydrate snacks consisting of approximately 400 calories.
This hike will meet the conditioning hike requirement for Hiking Merit Badge, the 5 mile mile hike requirement for Second Class, count as a Troop activity for Second Class and First Class, and partially fulfill the active requirement for Star, Life and Eagle. Scouts working on Star, Life, and Eagle will have the opportunity to organize the Scouts and lead the hike, thereby earning partial credit for the leadership requirement.
Adults willing and nearly able to participate in hikes this year should email Scott Laudeman at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can plan future hikes.
