Virginia Creeper Trail Bike Ride

May 8th
Damascus, VA

The Virginia Creeper Trail is an old railroad path that has been converted into a wide and smooth trail which is perfect for biking. The trail slopes gently downhill and is easy enough for even the newest bike riders to handle. We meet in Damascus, Virginia at The Bike Station (about a 2.5 hour drive from Mooresville). From the Bike Station our bikes are put on trailers and we are driven to the top of the trail (approx. 25 minutes) in a shuttle bus. We are dropped off and enjoy a 3 to 3.5 hour ride through beautiful scenery back to the shop. The trail passes over bridges and along streams, and around mountains. There are plenty of scenic places to picnic.

Please RSVP by April 29.

Stone Mountain Camping

stmo_bluesky3April 25-26th

Pack 171 has a camping trip planned to Stone Mountain, NC. We will be camping at Stone Mountain State Park which is about an hour and a half north of Mooresville. This is a family friendly camp out so parents and siblings are welcome. Families should plan to bring their own tents and other camping equipment. The pack will provide dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday for $5 per family.

There will be dinner, activities and roasted marshmallows around the fire Saturday night.  After breakfast on Sunday we’ll plan on taking a hike, weather permitting.

Make plans to join us now. See you there!
