Boy Scouts of America have long held a tradition of 50 Mile hikes or treks during the summer months. Big for Boy Scouts are the Philmont Treks. Living here in Sacramento we have the fabulous Sierra Neveda Mountains right next door. Why travel to New Mexico when we have so much to explore in our many corners of this wonderful state. hike the John Muir Trail, hike the Pacific Crest Trail, explore the Desolation wilderness.
Troop 1 has a strong tradition too of preparing and sending out a high adventure groups to do 50 mile hikes.
