Marsden Tract Campout - Part One (Feb. 19 and 20, 2017)

In preparation for the BTOW, shakedown hikes and campouts are a must.  This gives each Scout and Leader the opportunity to see what works and does not work.

This February, we decided to hold a weekend camping trip to the Marsden Tract on the Potomac River.

After meeting at the troop room, and gathering the needed gear, we headed out to the lower parking lot at Carderock.  Then along the Billy Goat Trail (B) to the C&O Tow Path and back onto the Billy Goat Trail (A) to the campsite.

Here are a couple of photos for your enjoyment!
