Hike the historic route through majestic redwoods developed by the Pacific Skyline Council and earn the awesome patch pictured above.   This 13 mile hike connects the three camps used by peninsula Scouts over the past century.  We will begin at the Cutter Scout Camp (used from the 1970’s to the present), and then travel back in time to Camp Pomponio (1940’s – 1960’s) before ending in Memorial Park, the site of Pescadero Camp (1920’s – 1940’s).   We have permission from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Dept. to hike through the old Camp Pomponio, which was converted to a jail in the 1970’s.  The jail is now closed, so we will explore the grounds and look at some remnants of the old scout camp.  See flyer for signup details.
