May 2021 – Knoll lake

21 scouts 11 Adults from Phoenix BSA Troops 3323 and 323 participated in this favorite outing at Knoll Lake on the Mogollon Rim. The roads were finally opened allowing access to the trailhead off of FR300. This is a short 2-mile hike to the back end of the lake. Many of the scouts came ready to fish unfortunately the fish were not ready to be caught. This outing provided each patrol the opportunity to truly spread out and camp independently from each other. Fire was banned so all cooking was done on small camp stoves. The water level on the lake was very low verifying that we are currently in a drought in the southwest US.
