Trail Trekker Hike: Saturday December 6: Little Yosemite, 9:45am

This month’s Trail Trekker Hike is at Little Yosemite canyon at Sunol Regional Wilderness.

This is a rain or shine event.   The waterfall should be running with big water this time!

This another great hike with an added bonus when we get down to the creek!
The Rainy days will make this hike great!
Let’s meet at the Visitor center on the left when you first come in to the park, it is sometimes called “the old green barn”.
We will cross the footbridge and take the Canyon View Trail to begin.

The hike will begin Saturday, December 6th at 10:00 am, so please be there by 9:45 am
“Be Prepared” for any kind of weather and bring water and snacks to enjoy when we get the the Little Yosemite area.
This hike is about 4.5 miles and is open to all ages of Cub Scouts.
From the Fremont area,  I-680 North and exit at Calaveras Road, or take Niles Canyon Road to Calaveras Road.  Turn right on Calaveras and proceed to Geary Road, which leads directly into the park.

Scouting For Food Dropoff Event, November 8, 2014

SFF2014We had around a dozen scouts turn out for Scouting For Food to drop off door-flyers in the Brookvale neighborhood on November 8.  Here’s photographic evidence that our scouts were there, intently focused on listening to instructions, and not at all completely absorbed in contemplating donuts!
Special thanks to Carl Allison for bringing donuts!
