Striking out on another trail that is new to us (and only in existence since 2001), Troop 54 will hike the Tully Trail, stopping overnight at the trail shelter where this trail meets the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail. Our current plan is to hike one-way, not returning to our starting point.

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.
