50 Miler: Mt. Whitney Backpack (Aug 7-13)

posted Jun 24, 2012, 1:19 PM by Vivek Sharma   [ updated Jun 24, 2012, 1:21 PM ]

Here’s your chance to test your backpacking skills, hike breathtaking parts of the John Muir and Pacific Crest trails, summit the highest point in the contiguous United States (14,505’), and earn the BSA 50-miler patch.

Note: This is a very strenuous backpacking trip, and it is strongly suggested that interested Scouts be in good physical condition, and have prior experience with high altitude hiking or backpacking. Preference will be given to older Scouts and Scouts with backpacking experience.  [Flyer]
