Pedro Trail Hike - Service Opportunity


We will be hiking the Pedro Trail's Yellow loop which will be a 6 mile hike taking you to all corners of the camp. You will experience this varied ecosystem of wooded to sand, hills and valleys. The Pedro Trail takes its name after Boys Life's mascot Pedro the Burro. This trail has its own set of challenges. If you are up for the adventure, we would love to have you.

Service: If you would like to help remark the trail, all you need to do is bring a hammer. Nails, trail markers and stickers will be provided.

Supplies: Please plan for the weather, we hike rain or shine. You should have comfortable shoes (boots), water for everyone in your family. There are spots along the way at the tent sites that you can refill. Note this is well water. Plan to pack a healthy lunch with light snacks.

All are invited (spouses, children that are able to hike the distance, no strollers or walkers. All attending should be able to make the entire hike). The hike should take about 5-6 hours.

Where to Meet: We will park in the lot outside of the Thomas Trainor Museum, the entrance to the yellow loop is just north west of the parking lot. See maps below and print them out for your trip.

Costs: Free!
