On Saturday March 23rd, eight scouts and four ASMs went on a hike to Inspiration Point via the Lower Sam Merrill to Middle Sam Merrill Trail returning via Castle Canyon.
We hiked 11 miles from 8am to 4:00pm. We had a lot of fun on the hike. We stopped for lunch at the Mount Lowe Campsite. On our way down through Castle Canyon, we let our feet rest in a bubbling brook; it really felt good!
We had a few scouts get some sign offs on plant ID and Map and Compass skills. Overall, we had a lot of fun and I would recommend this trip to experienced hikers.
