Today the Cub Scouts of Pack 107 took on our most challenging hike to date- conquering Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH. We hiked up the Old Toll Road Trail to the Halfway House Site and then to White Arrow to the base of the summit. The Scouts had a blast climbing this mountain. “This hike is so awesome” was the phrase of the day, along with asking if we can do more hikes like this.
Unfortunately, due to a wall of rain being blown our way, we chose not to summit the mountain for everyone’s safety. We ate our lunches at the base of the summit, finishing just in time for the rain to start. We worked our way slowly back down the trail and had sunshine for the rest of the hike. We even stopped back at the Halfway House Site so that everyone could get their pictures taken in the stone chair!
5 1/2 hours and 4.2 miles later and we reached the starting gate! Great work Scouts!
It was a great day with everyone and we look forward to our next hiking adventure together!
