T777 PCT Section 2 Backpacking Trek Sign Up, Feb. 15-17

Post date: Jan 17, 2020 4:16:22 AM

Hello T777 Scouts and Families,

It's never too late to head out on the Pacific Crest Trail! This trek will cover the second segment of the PCT in San Diego, from Lake Morena to the Burnt Rancheria Campground in the Laguna Mountains, over President’s Day weekend, Saturday Feb. 15th to Monday, Feb. 17th.

For scouts that participated in the section 1 hike, this will take us another 20 miles toward Canada. But even if you missed the first trek, you can still join in and earn the San Diego County High Adventure PCT Patch and strip for section 2.

This stretch will take us up out of the desert and into the trees as we climb several thousand feet in altitude over the three day hike. Given the time of year, we may encounter wet, even snowy weather. Participants must have previous backpacking experience and be prepared for the elements.

Sign up by Feb. 5th. Mandatory pre-trek meeting Monday, Feb. 10.

Trek form attached.
