Buttermilk Falls Day Hike

The troop has scheduled a hike at Buttermilk Falls at the Delaware Water Gap for Sunday October 27th. We will be leaving *from the SVDP parking lot near the clocktower* at 10:00 AM, after the 8:30 AM Mass, and returning approximately 5:00 PM.

This is a beautiful 5 mile hike that is rated moderate to difficult, with a steady climb of over 1000 feet in elevation.

The older scouts that may be going to Sabattis Trek in 2014 and/or Philmont in 2015 season should bring a pack that can carry 1 to 4 gallons of water. This is a test hike to let you know what carrying 30-40 pounds on a hike is like.

There is no fee for this afternoon event.  The permission form for this hike is available at http://www.troop59.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/20131027_BUTTERMILK_FALLS1.pdf
