A major part of Scouting is enjoying the outdoors, and learing how to do so responsibly. In recent years, we've gone on Pack hikes in local parks. We try to find reasonably easy paths (not up and
down steep mountains!), and especially locations with historical or natural points of interest. These aren't always short hikes -- they might vary between 3 and 4 miles and take a couple of hours
-- but with all their friends around to enjoy the day, these hikes go fast for everyone.
