Come join #LoneScoutJason on his quest to earn all the BSA Awards in California before he ranks up to Eagle.  Scouts BSA from any council or troop, regardless of gender or rank, can join in.  ========================= ABOUT THE RIM OF THE BAY/RIMROVERS The purpose of the RIM OF THE BAY patch program is to encourage hiking and to bring into the lives of our Scouts a "mountain top" experience. There are six Mountains that surround our area that you hike up. When you finish the first mountain you get a patch and a "rocker" with the name of the mountain. Rockers are awarded for each additional hike completed. All of these trips can be accomplished in a single day. There are camping sites at or near most if your plans include an overnight camp experience. Mount Tamalpais Trail Route - this a 8.5 miles loop Start at Pan Toll Parking Lot. Take the Easy Grade Trail. At Mountain Theater, take the Rock Springs Trail. At the West Poin Inn, take the Old Railroad Grade Fire Road to East Peak. Return on Old Railroad Grade Fire Road to West Point In, then on old Stage Fire Road to Pan Toll Parking lot.   Elevation: 2,571'Elevation Gain: 1,081' There is overnight camping at Pan Toll. It is first-come, first-served. One campsite can accommodate 8 people and 1 car.  Information available at https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=471   =================================== BSA Native Plants Award Requirements:    1. Complete a day or weekend hike of at least 5 miles round trip.    2. Each Scout will begin a plant and tree log book for identifying at least 10 local native plants or trees. When completed the log book must contain an identifying sketch or picture of each plant and tree and enough words that will help the Scout to identify the plants and trees to others. (Note: If a Scout only knows how to identify an oak tree by its acorns then he would have one of the items for his log book. On the other hand, if a Scout knew the difference between a Coast Live Oak and a Canyon Live Oak, he would have two items for his log book.)   3. Each Scout will identify at least 4 local native plants or trees on this hike and enter them into the log book.   4. The local native plant and tree log book must be completed within 3 months of the hike. Scouts who have previously passed First Class requirement 6 must also make their own log book.   5. Each Scout should know how to identify local poisonous or irritating plants such as Poison Oak and stinging nettles and how to treat for exposure to them. (Tenderfoot requirement 11) ===================================== NOTES - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: 1) Travel from wherever you are and the Mountain we will be hiking at is your responsibility.  2) This is NOT a drop off. All Scouts should be accompanied by 1-BSA Adult (21+) with YPT + 1st Aid from the same troop at the maximum ratio of 3-Scouts to 1-BSA Adult. 3) Cost listed is for the award patch + rocker + sales tax + shipping from San Francisco to Los Angeles to your home. There are NO REFUNDS effective August 12, 2019. 4) Scouts will wear comfortable clothing (moisture wicking shirt and moisture wicking socks) with hiking boots.
