On December 19, 2015 the first ever Ludlam Trail Hike gathered 15 scouts and their scout leaders from Boy Scout Troop 43, Venturing Crew 870, and Venturing Crew 43 to hike 6 miles from AD Barnes Park to Dadeland and back. It was a beautiful day in Miami with temperatures in the low 70s and an overcast ensuring a cool day and shade from the Miami sun. The hike was led by local scout leader, avid outdoors-man and conservationist Frank Fernandez representing scout’s Tequesta chapter. Along the hike, the scouts learned details regarding the Ludlam Trail project, surveyed the terrain, learned survival skills and identified wildlife along the trail. We thank them for their service and look forward to future partnerships. Through direct service to the trail and continued advocacy, we know the scouts will play a key role in the successful implementation of the trail.
