November 22nd - 24th, 2019

This will be a very fun bike hike on the beautiful West Orange Trail in Apopka, FL.  This is a 30 mile bike trek through the woods and through the city.   Don't worry, we have a safety vehicle with spare bikes, and will be able to give a lift if anyone can't make it.

It was formed by the "Rails to Trails" project where railroad tracks were turned into bike trail areas.  We did this trip in 2014 as a Troop.  

We will be camping in the beautiful group site at Wekiwa Springs State Park.   Activities include biking, field games, and swimming in the springs.
