Pescadero Backpacking Trip

posted Mar 28, 2013, 6:29 PM by David McAllister

From March 15th-17th, a total of 16 scouts and 4 adults traversed the terrain of the Santa Cruz Mountains in the Pescadero Creek County Park.  They hiked through many majestic forests.  The trip included many first time backpackers.  They got their first experience of carrying their meals and tents.  The backpackers hiked a total of 7.5 miles.  There was also an optional 6 mile day hike.  At night there were games such as Zorch and Mafia accompanied by a slew of Chuck Norris jokes.  This all amounted to a great trip that got many future backpackers introduced to backpacking.
