The snow on the trail is too much for a mountain bike ride thanks to the Snowmageddon on Wednesday. So the troop is going to Hike 20 miles for the Hiking Merit Badge. This is the best route because its gentle sloping down the entire way!
On Sunday the 17th, Meet at the Santa Fe Trailhead in Palmer Lake at 630am: https://goo.gl/maps/gqFLzS56cMx
