San Jacinto Winter Backpack

Posted on Apr 25 2012 - 7:21pm
In late March 2012, five scouts and three adults from Troop 636, ventured into the alpine environment of Mt. San Jacinto. We had rescheduled the hike from March 3-4 to March 24-25 in hopes of additional snow and the wait really paid off. After a hardy breakfast at Farmer Boys we arrive at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway parking lot on schedule. The tram ride is always quick and breathtaking....sometimes it is too quick for younger scouts to acclimate to the elevation (8,500'). We spent half an hour at the Mountain Tram station relaxing and adjusting to the elevation.

Buckskin Gulch Wrapup

Buckskin Gulch

In the O-dark:30 hour of April 9 in a group campsite in Zion National Park 7 adventuresome souls woke in darkness to the voice of Scoutmaster Kelley hissing "Come on guys, lets get going!"   We drove through the moonlit Zion Canyon, through the Mt. Caramel mile long tunnel honking along the way and drove 80 miles east to the White House trailhead near the Paria River.  If all went to the plan, White House trailhead is where the adventurers would emerge from the 21 mile long hike through the canyons.  Along the route we opened the Kannab McDonalds for the last breakfast where we had to wait for the fryers and griddles to warm up. 

Trabuco Canyon 10/20 Mile Hike

Posted on Feb 11 2012 - 9:00am
Last Saturday, on a crisp fall morning, 32 Troop  636 hikers stepped out of their comfort zone and into the urban wilderness of  Trabuco Canyon. We hike 10 miles under giant Coastal Live Oak and Sycamore  trees. We had to cross over the raging waters of Trabuco Creek several  times (no life vests required). We were surrounded by fall colors and good  friends. After a hardy lunch, four of us made the return trip.

Saddleback Peak Day Hike

Posted on Feb 11 2012 - 8:58am

Join us for a beautiful day hike to the highest point in OrangeCounty!  On a clear day you can see all the way to Mexico and past Long Beach (on a foggy day you can only see 100 feet).  Plan on hiking the last mile on a couple of inches of SNOW and bring some warm clothes for the top. We will have our lunch “on top of Orange County”. This is an excellent opportunity to keep in hiking shape and the hike will count towards your Hiking Merit Badge.

Saddleback Peak Day Hike (February 2012)

Posted on Feb 11 2012 - 8:56am
In the cold, darkness of last Saturday morning, 25  enthusiastic scouts, webelos, parents and friends prepared to hike "our"  mountain...Saddleback (AKA Santiago Peak). From our meeting point near Live  Oak Canyon Road we drove away from our urban lives and into historic Orange  County. The Holy Jim Trailhead is in the Cleveland National Forest, surrounded  by 100 year old oak trees. We planned the hike as a "Two Tier" event to  maximize participation: a 17 mile hike to the top for older/experienced scouts  and a 10 hike for younger scouts. The Holy Jim Trail, named after a  legendary resident of the canyon, follows a small creek and then  begins to climb the steep canyon. It was cool in the morning but we warmed up  quick as we hiked. Those going to the top were led by strong scouts at the front  and a couple of very fit adults. I lead the AARP sweeper team at the  back of the pack. Arriving at the top (EL 5,600') at 11:15, we were fortunate to  have super clear air. We looked out at Catalina Island, San  Gorgonio, and the skyscrapers of downtown LA. We ate lunch, napped and took  photos. The hike down was quick but enjoyable, we made it back to the trailhead  by 4 PM. Another great Peak Bagging for Troop 636.
