Hiking at Ten Mile River
Special thanks to Sean Johnson who created these Hiking Guides and to David Malatzky and the TMR Musuem.
The TMR Museum also offers georeferenced maps of T.M.R. for use on gps-enabled cell phones and tablets through the Avenza Maps Store:
These require installation of the free Avenza Maps (former PDF Map) app on your gps-enabled cell phone/tablet. The app shows you your location anywhere on T.M.R. property within 20 ft.
There are also two amazing paid verisons of the map in the Avenza Maps Store:
- 2016 Ten Mile River Scout Camps Trail Map
- 1962 Ten Mile River Scout Camps Historical Map
|A Visit to Trout Pond - Fairly Easy - 5.23 Miles||This hike is a variation of the “Crystal Lake Loop” hike, in that it includes a visit to Trout Pond. This is a great option for adult leaders wishing to teach and/or supervise the use of map and compass for aspiring 2nd Class scouts, as it will meet that rank’s requirement 3(b) -the five mile hike.||Download|
|Black Ash Swamp Loop - Easy - 2.91 Miles||This is a great introductory day hike at Ten Mile River. The hike begins on the main TMR Trail (marked with red markers) at the Ten Mile River Scout Museum in Headquarters and travels around the east side of Turnpike Pond.||Download|
|Crystal Lake Loop - Fairly Easy - 3.97 Miles||This is a popular hike not only because of its proximity to Ten Mile River’s largest summer camp at Camp Keowa but also because of its spectacular scenery.||Download|
|Hike to Indian Cliffs - Fairly Easy - 3.37 Miles||The hike to Indian Cliffs from the Camp Kunatah gate is perhaps one of the most (if not the most) popular segments of the entire TMR Trail. Rather than the usual “out and back” route, I have added an additional portion that will walk the length of Rock Lake, creating a loop.||Download|
|T.M.R. Trails Map||This is the 24 in. x 27 in. T.M.R. Trails Map separated into three letter-sized sections (in one PDF). Unlike the full-sized version, this can be printed on a typical color printer, then taped together to form a complete T.M.R. map||Download|
