Colonial District’s CAT-40 hike is a high adventure activity on the Potomac River’s scenic Mount Vernon Trail. The 40km hike is equivalent to walking a marathon; successful completion will require adult leaders to ensure that Scouts are prepared for this distance through shakedown hikes. The 20km hike (HALF-CAT) provides an opportunity for younger Scouts to develop and test their endurance in a safe-to-fail environment. The hike is “supported”, meaning there are Support Stops along the way that provide food, drink, first aid, encouragement, and bail-out options. The hike can also be used as a team-building and training event for Lenhoksin, Philmont, or other backpacking adventures.
