This was Troop 221’s second trip to Eagle Rock Loop, and it is quickly becoming a staple. It is a 25 mile hike with 4000′ elevation gain that takes 3 days. It is a great training hike for the scouts headed to Philmont and a good way to test gear and strategies for our “light and fast” backpacking philosophy. The scouts and adults had an amazing time and we plan to be back again next year!
