On October 3rd, Troop 24 left Croton Dam and walked south as far as Dobbs Ferry, a hike that took all day. The boys and their troop leaders spent the night at the beautiful Waterfront park beside the Hudson river. It was cold... br-r.
For the next lap of the journey they chose November 7. They left the Keeper's House early and walked as far as the High Bridge. Thanks to the Friends' trusty map, they made it!
The sight of the water tower as they neared the goal must have been glorious. All together the boys and their leaders walked 20 miles. They now know every ventilator and weir on the whole trail. Congratulations Troop 24! Mavis Cain
