South Mountain Reservation Hike and Rocket Launching

Hello Pack 19 families,

Our Pack Hike is scheduled for Sunday, November 17, 2013 at 1:00pm in the South Mountain Reservation.  We’ll meet on Cherry Lane near the Boy Scout Area (see image to right).  To get there, take South Orange Avenue towards Livingston, turn right on Brookside Drive and then a quick right on Cherry Lane.  There will be a parking lot on your right.

We will start by launching our rockets, and then we’ll be walking the Turtle Back trail, a 2.5 mile trail which gets to close to 600′ elevation.

Please wear comfortable hiking boots or sneakers and wear weather appropriate clothing.  Bring a bag lunch for the trip.  See you Sunday at 1:00.

Here’s a map of the whole reservation for reference.
