Hikes and Historic Trails

Patriots’ Path Council has several historic trails within our council area that allow Scouts to explore New Jersey’s rich history. Our historic trail hikes have options suitable for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA and Venture Scouts. Historic hikes not only give Scouts the opportunity to learn about the history of the area they are hiking, they also provide opportunities to complete advancement and merit badge requirements. Scouts can learn how to prepare for an outing, safety and the Buddy System, how to apply Leave No Trace principles as well as learning about the environment they will be exploring. The Victory Trail Historic Hike and Walking Tour provide Scouts these learning opportunities in an urban setting.
