Troop 10 Scouts bike C&O towpath

March 23, 2009

Outdoor experiences and physical exercise are some of the aspects of the Boy Scouts of America program.

Units strive to include these outings, along with good citizenship in the program for the Scouts.

Recently, the Scouts and Leaders set out to bike the C&O Canal towpath as one of the trails in the Mason-Dixon Council area. The Scouts packed their bicycles and lunches and started from Fort Frederick and biked the towpath, ending at Williamsport. Along the way, they discovered some of the plants native to the area and were told of the local history associated with the canal.

Troop 10, Hagerstown set a goal to complete the historical trails of the Mason-Dixon Council. The troop plans to complete the following Washington County trails: Appalachian Trail, Old Forbes Trail and Antietam National Battlefield.

Trinity Lutheran Church, Hagerstown, sponsors Troop 10.
