I am a merit badge counselor for our troop for Hiking and Backpacking.  Below you will find links to some local hikes.  The Pinchot Trail and the Thunder Swamp Trail give you many options to plan day hikes.  You need to plan and complete 5, 10 mile day hikes.  You will also find a sample hike plan below (you may not use this as one of your 5).  You can find the requirements for the merit badge by clicking here.
