Map and Compass Hike

On Saturday, August 24th, we hiked a ~7 mile loop along the North Boundary Trail in Oak Ridge. This hike was tailoered to fulfill requirement 1b (5 mile hike with map and compass) for those scouts who have not yet achived second class. It was a beautiful morning, not too hot,and we were on the trail for about 3 1/2 hours with ~10 stops to determine our position on the map and to take a compass bearing back to the trailhead and to the summit of Blair Mountain.
