Bikepacking trip to Glenn Camp on San Gabriel River, December 2014

December 19th, 2014 at 6:38

This bikepacking trip is a regular event for Troop 147. Boys did a great job riding 7 miles up to Glenn Camp, carrying heavy packs. This is probably the most scenic bike path around, and the recent heavy rains guaranteed some great waterfalls and fording of streams to get to camp. Glenn Canyon Falls, usually dry, were spectacular. A tough ride (or walk!) up the hill to Cogswell Reservoir showed that it was still very low, but improving. That night, the boys did a great job lighting a campfire under difficult conditions, resulting in some excellent s’mores. The trip downriver is always a breeze and the best part was, no flats and no accidents.
