  • Troop 56 Regular events - AT Hikes
    scheduled hikes are fit into the Troop calendar Hike dates are divided equally between Friday summer Saturday and Sunday Heavy rain or snow may cancel a hike Adult volunteers are vital to the success of an AT hike Adults who do not wish to hike can support the efforts of their scout by providing much needed shuttle support Since each hike is a one way trip a driver is needed to shuttle the hiking and driving adults back to the start of the hike after dropping off their vehicles In this way when all hikers get to the end of the hike they can simply get in the waiting cars and head home This saves an hour of shuttle time at trails end when tired Scouts can do nothing but wait This effort is sincerely appreciated by everyone We try to plan a 5 mile Early Exit Opportunity when possible this requires additional drivers While on the trail participants learn to read trail blazes improve map skills test their stamina and get an opportunity to see a different side of New Jersey Wildlife sightings are common Often we will pass Thru hikers people who have committed themselves to hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail We walk the same trail as they do with considerably lighter packs Each section provides a unique experience What to bring Comfortable hiking shoes socks Sneakers should be avoided as they provide little support over the rocky terrain no low cut socks an extra pair of socks takes up little room and a fresh pair can offer relief during a break and help to avoid blisters Synthetic pants shirts Jeans are NEVER appropriate for hiking zip offs are great layering in cooler weather long sleeves help with bugs sunburn cotton should be avoided quick
