In Massachusetts, the Community Advocate reports that a group of local Girl Scouts recently hiked the Appalachian Trail in Massachusetts. In honor of the 100th birthday of Girl Scouts, all Scouts are invited to hike the trail in bits and pieces during the year. By the end of the year the whole trail will be hiked. The girls and adults did several prep hikes and camp set ups to prepare for the weekend.
Girl Scouts all over the East Coast have picked a portion of the Appalachian Trail to hike, resulting in over 2,000 miles of trail hiked in pieces.
