Story

We took the 11-year-old Scouts on the Spectra Point Trail in Cedar Breaks as part of our August camp out.

The boys really enjoyed this easy hike. When we were all done, we went to bed. Then the next morning we made a quick stop at North View Overlook then we hiked down the Rattlesnake Creek Trail then continued down Ashdown Gorge.
