Day Hike at Green Lane Park

==> SIGN UP HERE <==

On the Road to Philmont!  On Sunday 14 March we will DAY HIKE in Green Lane Park.   

THIS HIKE IS ONLY OPEN TO SCOUTS WHO HAVE SIGNED UP FOR PHILMONT OR SCOUTS ELIGIBLE TO GO WHO ARE STILL CONSIDERING JOINING THE TRIP. You can see who that is HERE. Your parent(s) are welcome to join us if they have appropriate gear and are confident in being able to hike this distance and terrain.

WHY?  Because it is there. Because it is fun. Because you need five 10-mile hikes to complete the Hiking merit badge (Eagle required). Because to "Be Prepared" for Philmont, 10 miles in Green Lane Park needs to become a "walk in the park."  

WHEN?  Sunday 14th March • Meet at 10AM sharp at the parking lot of the Marlborough Elementary School DIRECTIONS.  We expect to be back at the same parking lot at 3PM for pickup. We will call/message if we're going to be substantially earlier or later than that time.

How far are we hiking? About 10 miles (hiking map).


  • To bring your signed PERMISSION SLIP (will be sent by email to those who RSVP)
  • To wear appropriate clothes (check the weather) and good shoes (hiking boots or rugged snow boots)
  • To bring a backpack loaded with at least 1/5 of your body weight (email the Scoutmaster if you need to borrow one)
  • To bring water (at least two liters) and something for lunch
  • Check out the PHILMONT TEN ESSENTIALS here.

WHO?  The hike will be led by ASM Shawn.

Bad Weather?  If the weather looks threatening (lightening, hail, tornados, etc.), we may reschedule. A little rain will not stop us. Check the web site before heading out.
