Sligo Creek Hike

Topo map of tkpk
A five mile hike needed for the requirement (3b) for Second Class. The troop has laid out a trail, with the trail-head located at University Blvd W & Sligo  Creek Pkwy, Silver Spring. You can see the five mile route on google maps along Sligo Trail ending at TPPC.

  • Sligo Creek Parkway and Dennis Ave
  • Sligo Creek Parkway and Forest Glen Road
  • Sligo Creek Parkway and Colesville Road
  • Sligo Creek Parkway and Piney Branch Road
  • Sligo Creek Parkway and Maple Ave
There is a parking lot 1/4 of a mile south of the starting point at University Blvd W & Sligo Creek Pkwy, Silver Spring.

To make the hike work best, this should be done as a patrol, with the patrol divided into two-person teams. Each team should depart at five-minute intervals. The supervising adults and older scouts should set up check points at each of the points above to help the participants along the way.

Finally, someone should be at the church to check the teams in and provide a snack.

Three topo maps that can be used for instruction:
