Jon J Duerr Forest Preserve
South Elgin


NOTE : This is the three mile hike which is a requirement for a Webelos scout to earn their rank.

The Pack is invited to annual day-after-Thanksgiving hike on Friday, November 26th, 2021 at 10:00AM. We will begin our hike at Jon J Duerr Forest preserve and will walk to the Blackhawk Waterfall and back…and then a little bit more to get to the three mile requirement. If any Scouts from Troop 10 are looking to get some exercise on their day off, feel free to join us.

How far are we hiking?? We will plan to hike 3.0 miles.

What to wear? – Watch the weather and dress appropriately, including appropriate footwear – dress to the temperature and the weather. If it’s sunny, be sure to wear sunscreen and/or a hat to shield you from sunburn.

What to bring? – Start with the Cub Scout six essentials in a backpack: Flashlight, Water, Whistle, First Aid Kit, Sunscreen, and Trail Food.
