  • Cutter to the sea mountain biking

    On Saturday May 20th we will be having a 22 mile mountain bike ride from Cutter to the sea. There are some really good views and it should be sunny all day. Departure from the scout house will be at around 9(tbc).

    This is quite a challenging ride so we do require that scouts must be in at least 8th grade or must have comfortably completed an 8 mile mountain bike ride with Troop 57. We will need drivers.

  • Montebello Mountain Bike Ride on April 29
    Image result for montebello mountain biking
    Please sign up for our next exciting mountain bike ride, which will be at Montebello on Saturday day, April 29 starting at 3:00pm. The deadline is this Wednesday. I have enjoyed mountain biking with T57 and hope that you will join me.

    Due to trail conditions at Tamarancho we have decided to make this change from the schedule.  Montebello is one of our favorite rides as it’s largely downhill through forests and over some streams with lots of surrounding nature. 

    We are planning to have pizza at the end of the ride as a reward for finishing this 9 miler.

    The weather looks great for the weekend. 

    Adults, we will need drivers who can drop off at Montebello and pick up a couple hours later at Stevens Canyon.  This is a critical component for a successful outing so please let us know if you can be a designated driver and how many scouts you can take.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at the scout house on the 29th for 3:00 pm sharp departure.

    Note: New link to the sign-up sheet below

    We're judging whether there is enough interest to have a spring break trip (April 2-8, 2017) to the Canyon Country of Utah and Arizona.  We're considering two prospective trips, one to the Grand Canyon and one to Escalante National Monument. More details here.


          Either trip is long enough to count as one of the four required for the Backpacking Merit Badge.   


         We  need to apply for a permit by the end of this month for an April trip. Minimum trip size is two ASMs and two scouts; maximum is 11 people in the Grand Canyon and 12 in Escalante.  


           The trip difficulty levels are:

    ·   Grand Canyon:   Moderately Strenuous 

    ·   Escalante :          Moderate


    If you're interested you can add your name here.

    grand canyon national park, AZ

    escalante national monument, UT
