Mt Mansfield Hike

Troop 4 is continuing its backpacking circuit to the highest peaks in each of the New England states this summer, summiting Mt. Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak. This is a short hike and an ideal introduction to backpacking for even the newest Scouts, rewarding relatively modest effort with some stunning views in the alpine zone above one of the lowest tree lines in the East.
