What: Sunol to Del Valle Shakedown Hike
When: May 18 - 20, 2018
Who: Philmont Crews 
Cost: $30 ($31.20 through PayPal)
SIC: TBD
Activity Coordinator: Julie Crane

Details

This is a 19.5 mile, 6,000' elevation gain, 3-day, 2-night shakedown designed to give crew members a taste of longer distances, elevation gain/loss, and a multi-night trip.  Ask any Troop 33 Scout who has been to Philmont about this shakedown and they will tell you it was really hard but was a perfect test of whether they were ready for Philmont or not.  If you can survive Saturday at Sunol, you can survive any single day at Philmont.

NOTE: This is a point-to-point hike, we need driver to drop-off at Sunol on Friday and pick up at Del Valle on Sunday.
