About the Event

Hey there Troop 109!

We have a plan!  Fossil Springs Waterfall Trail via Camp Verde.  https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/arizona/fossil-creek-waterfall-trail.  We will camp in the forest somewhere off the 260 that afternoon and come home Sunday morning.

Meet at the church at 6:30 am for a 7am departure.  I'm sorry this is so early but the parking lots fill up at Fossil Creek and the lower the lot, the longer the hike.  There are spectacular waterfalls and lots of swimming along the creek so wear hiking/walking shoes, carry a lunch and lots of water and swim gear.  There are no permits required after October 1.  If you want to come just for the day, you are welcome to join us.

Also!!! This is supposed to be a service outing at Palace Station, but we have an opportunity to help the area of Fossil Springs.  Each hiker should carry a large garbage bag to fill on the way out.  The reviews I've seen say people are still leaving a lot of garbage in the area.  I will have a prize for the boy that picks up the most!

Everything else below still applies...

Come prepared for car camping.  Bring water and your own food for lunch and dinner Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.  Please let Yatzana know if you need to cancel your reservation.

See you all soon!
