Dear Troop 224 Families,

Pinacles Backpacking Trip - March 17-18 SIGN UP NOW!

Posted on Feb 20 2018 - 10:47am

Sign Up Here  - Born of Fire Some 23 million years ago multiple volcanoes erupted, flowed, and slid to form what would become Pinnacles National Park. What remains is a unique landscape. Travelers journey through chaparral, oak woodlands, and canyon bottoms. Hikers enter rare talus caves and emerge to towering rock spires teeming with life: prairie and peregrine falcons, golden eagles, and the inspiring California condor. This is one of the Rim Rover hikes. Philmont crews are expected to hike with 35+ pound backpacks. We will be car camping so you can bring food in a cooler. Each tent and group site has a picnic table and fire ring. Water is located throughout the campground...

Directions: drive about 3 hours on I680 to HW101 to HW25. You cannot drive to the eastern side of the park from the HW101 entrance (so don’t miss HW25).

Itinerary: Meet at hut at 7:00am Saturday 3/17 to load gear. Leave hut at 7:30am. Arrive at park at 10:30. Setup camp, eat lunch, and hike for about 4 hours. Return to camp at about 5:00pm, cook dinner by patrol, clean up, and enjoy a campfire program. Revelry at 6:00am Sunday, pack up, eat cold breakfast, sweep camp, Scouts Own Service, Roses and Thorns, depart park at 9:00am, and get home to Lafayette at about noon.

Cost: covered by troop funds. Bring money for gas, road snacks, and souvenirs.

For more information go to https://www.nps.gov/pinn/index.htm or contact Mr. Kraszulyak.

Mount Diablo, elevation 3,849 feet, stands alone on the edge of California’s great Central Valley. From the summit, the view is spectacular. You can look to the west, beyond the Golden Gate Bridge, to the Farallon Islands; southeast to the James Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton at 4,213 feet elevation; south to Mount Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains at 3,791 feet elevation; north to Mount Saint Helena in the Coast Range at 4,344 feet, and still farther north to Mount Lassen in the Cascades at 10,466 feet. North and east of Mount Diablo, the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers meet to form the twisting waterways of the Delta. To the east beyond California’s great Central Valley, the crest of the Sierra Nevada seems to float in space.
