Shenandoah Backpacking Trip, Oct 29-30


The View from Hawksbill Summit

Bethesda’s Troop 233 spent a glorious fall weekend backpacking through the Shenandoah Valley last October 29-30, 2016. The troop split into two groups, one consisting of senior scouts who tackled the White Oak Canyon trail, hiking up over 3000 ft and experiencing wonderful vistas and waterfalls. The second group consisted of younger scouts who hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail. Both groups met at the same site for the evening at Rock Spring Hut, sharing in stories of the hike and enjoying the beautiful and surprising warm fall weather.
