Pack Hike - Morrow Mt

 

Come join Pack 97 on September 19th 2015 at Morrow Mountain State Park. We will be hiking the Fall Mountain trail. The trail is a moderate 4.1 miles and contains many interesting features. The trail begins by running through a diverse pine and hardwood forest before beginning the gradual ascent to Fall Mountain’s peak. At the summit, we will be able to view the Yadkin, Uwharrie, and Pee Dee Rivers simultaneously. Afterwards, we will continue on the trail as it loops back to the parking lot.

Directions and a park map are also available on the NC State Park website.

Check out the hike flyer for more details.

Please let us know if you will attend by entering your name on our registration page.

Hope to see you there.

 


 

 
Pack 97 Hiking Program

The hiking program runs year round and consists of monthly hikes at interesting locations around the Charlotte area.

Most hikes are within an hour's drive although sometimes we venture farther afield and are about 2 to 4 miles long. They are appropriate for all ranks from Tiger to Webelos. All scouts, families and siblings of Pack 97 are welcome to participate.

Pack 97's 2014-2015 Hiking Schedule is now available. Our online calendar has also been updated with the dates and locations of all pack hikes.

Pack 97 Intro to Backpacking
The intro to backpacking program will run year around in coordination with the hiking program. The backpacking program will serve to prepare older Cub Scouts for high adventure programs traditionally found in Boy Scouts. It will allow experienced hikers to become familiar with backpacking and offers educational components focused on backpacking safety, equipment, trail and food preparation and leave no trace principles.
  • The program is restricted to Bear and Webelos scouts who have earned their 20 miler hiking award.
  • The backpacking program follows the same schedule as Pack 97's Pack 97's 2014-2015 Hiking Schedule. Check the pack website in early spring for announcements on the backpack campout.
  • The program flyer has details on the program including a list of tiers and awards.
