Sycamore Grove Hike & Hoot Owl Recap | October 17th

On Sunday, October 17th, starting at 1 pm, the Pack 104 Webelos den 2 led a hike at the Sycamore Grove Trail. This moderately trafficked 4.8 mile loop trail is located near Livermore, California. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and bird watching and is best used from May until October.

This was an excellent alternate to the Flag Hill hike for the youngest Scouts or novice hikers, with only 200 feet of elevation gain.

After the Sycamore Grove hike, the Webelos den had a quick dinner and completed the Hoot Owl night hike. This is one of the hikes in the Trail Trekkers series, and perhaps the most unique of all. A park ranger led the group on a 1-1.5 mile night hike to look for owls and signs of owls within Sycamore Grove Park.
