This Sunday morning, Troop 355 Hiking and Camping Merit Badge Counselor Mr. Laudeman will lead a hike up Echo Mountain, a resort ruin 2.75 miles above Pasadena.
Trailhead: The top of Lake Avenue
Distance: 5.5 miles
Start Time: 7:00 a.m. SHARP!
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.
