Bay Circuit Trail Backpacking Trip


Saturday, November 5 -
Sunday, November 6, 2011
Nobscot Scout Reservation
Sudbury, MA

It is not often a completely new trail is created. The Bay Circuit Trail has grown to 180 miles of blazed trail since its beginning in 1990. Troop 54 will hike a portion of this trail from Callahan State Park to Nobscot Scout Reservation. We estimate the hike to be about 4 miles.

Pack light - "Every ounce counts!"

Use our Backwoods Camping List to make sure you don't forget anything. Be sure to include plenty of water. See other camping information on our Camping page. Definitely bring rain gear.
