Dec 22 Annual Troop 323 Bike Outing
This was a 27+ mile cross-country mountain bike ride through the pristine desert of north Scottsdale, starting at Browns Ranch Trailhead and ending at the McDowell Mountain Regional Park on the edge of Fountain Hills
The Troop met at LOM school on Friday evening and then drove to McDowell Mountain Regional Park Youth Group Campground to set up camp.
Saturday morning we drove 30 minutes to Brown’s Ranch Trailhead. We started our ride at Brown’s Ranch trailhead. We stop at points of interest and had lunch at ‘Balanced Rock’, which is about halfway thru the ride. After lunch, we continue the ride back to McDowell Mountain Regional Park via the Delsie Trail and then on to the youth campsite in time for dinner.
Sunday morning after eating and packing up camp the troop once again had the option to do a short bike ride on the park’s “Sports track” a fast-flowing trail.
