20 MILE OHLONE WILDERNESS HIKE

Sunol-Del Valle PatchBackpacker

In April 1997 the Troop made a 20 mile hike from Sunol to Del Valle through the Ohlone Wilderness with a one-night camp out en route. This is a long and grueling hike for experienced backpackers. Our scouts ranged in age from 12 to 14 and did a commendable job. Those who completed the hike earned the Ohlone Wilderness Hike Patch shown above.

The patch shows the elevation changes experienced on this hike. Note the brown colored hills–these are a representation of the elevation changes as going from West to East (left to right).
