Hiking Merit Badge & Mount Washington

You’ve been asking about it for months and the excitement is building.  Yes, we’re planning to tackle Mount Washington this year!  We’re going in July to help reduce the chance of cold weather/snow at the top.

The PLC began planning out the routes and scheduling the training required for anyone going on the 5 mile/4000′ hike.  If you’re interested in either Mount Washington, or earning Hiking Merit Badge…


The boys are planning all the hikes necessary for Hiking Merit Badge.  This will help everyone get in shape and help you earn a merit badge that’s required for Eagle, in the process.  You will need to hike 5 ten mile hikes.  9 are scheduled, but don’t delay because bad weather could cancel some of them.  Hiking dates for our troop are:

  • 3/2/2014
  • 3/15/2014
  • 3/29/2014
  • 4/5/2014
  • 4/27/2014
  • 5/10/2014
  • 5/31/2014
  • 7/12/2014

A 20 mile hike is also required for Hiking Merit Badge.  We’re planning one on 6/21/2014.  Please try to attend this hike, we don’t do very many of them.
