This is our annual Feast on the Mountain backpacking trip. We will return to West Mountain shelter point to enjoy spectacular views of NYC while we feast.
Saturday: The group will meet by the trailer at the Germonds parking lot at 8 AM (depart at 8:30am), carpooling is dependent on number of scouts and leaders, be prepared to drive your scout to the drop off at the parking area at Anthony Wayne Seasonal Lot.
We will head to West Mountain shelter via the Blue Trail, and meet up with Red Trail, Orange Trail, and finally Blue Trail into the shelter. Once there we will gather and prepare firewood for our feast, set up camp, and enjoy what the cooks have prepared. The evening sky is a real treat, as we can see clear to the lights of NYC on the horizon.
