Fort Mountain State Park - https://gastateparks.org/FortMountain
The Gahuti Trail (Cherokee for ‘mother mountain’) explores the beautiful backcountry of Fort Mountain State Park, looping just over eight miles to catch incredible long-range views from several towering overlooks. The trail also visits a beautiful, multi-tier waterfall at Goldmine Branch Creek. It makes for a great overnight backpacking adventure, along this moderately challenging loop.

Scouts - this is a great opportunity to serve our community, have fun and earn some service hours!! (Please note that many of our regular Troop-organized service opportunities may not occur in light of COVID-19. So if you are looking for service hours we encourage you to take advantage of whatever opportunities become available.)

Service Hours Opportunity - Tomorrow (Saturday 1/23/2021) Supporting Pack

Posted by robertgates on Jan 22 2021 - 10:42am

Scouts/Parents... We were given little notice on this, so apologies for the less than 24 hours notice.  If any Scouts are available, need service hours, or just want to help support our local CubScout Pack 575 tomorrow please let myself or Mr. Donaldson know asap.  As the note shares below from the CubMaster, we'd be supporting the AOL scouts as they cook and possibly provide a class or two of our own.  I also posted a note in the Scouts GroupMe.
