Hike on Saturday, April 5th - 7:00 AM


There will be a 5 mile hike tomorrow morning, Saturday, April 5th at 7:00 AM at the Morgan property in Middleborough.  Please meet in the parking lot (pictured above) and be sure to bring the following:

Plenty of water
Trail snacks
Comfortable walking shoes/boots
Bug spray (for ticks)
Hat
Rain gear (the weather may be rainy tomorrow)  

We will be checking to make sure you have these items before the hike begins.  A small day pack would be helpful to carry all these items.  This hike will depart the parking lot at 7:15 AM and should be completed by 11:00 AM.  We will not wait past 7:15 AM for scouts - as we must complete the full five miles by 11:00 AM.

For scouts who have not completed the 5 mile hike for the Second Class requirement, please bring a compass.

The Morgan Property is located off of Marion Road.  The directions from Town Hall are:

South Main Street to Route 28.
Left on Route 28 for 2 miles
Right onto Cherry Street for 1 mile
Left onto Marion Road for 3 1/2 miles
Right onto Long Point Road for 1/4 mile

The parking area is on the right.  A link for a map to the intersection of Marion Road and Long Point Road is here.  The photo at the top of this entry is of the parking lot, which will be on your right, 1/4 of a mile down after you turn onto Long Point Road.

Have a nice weekend!
