Event Description

This trip takes us to Pittsfield State Forest for our first time. We will backpack in from a trailhead on the edge of the forest and camp in a youth group site in the main campground. We will mostly hike the Taconic Crest Trail in and the Turner Trail down to the camping area.

This trip is open to Scouts BSA members. Participants should weigh at least 90 pounds or bring a parent to carry some of their stuff.
