Pike Hike – Long Beach!
When: enjoy this family or small-group outing anytime at your own convenience and at your own pace.
The enclosed hike will introduce Scouts to the early development of Long Beach and its unique

encouraged to conduct the hike in smaller groups, or start at staggered times, due to the crowded and

bottles will be needed in the summer. Jackets, water bottles and possibly rain gear will be needed in the
winter. If conducting this walk in April, you may run into detours due to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long
