May Outing

On May 13 we’ll hike from the Eastside Beltline trailhead in Atlanta’s Ansley Park neighborhood to the summit of Stone Mountain and finish with a family picnic and fun on the lawn with the Stone Mountain laser show. From end to end, we’ll hike almost 23 miles. This will be a challenging day, but you can do it! Scouts who complete the hike will also complete the 20-mile hike requirement for the Hiking Merit Badge and Second Class rank requirement 3b.
