Philmont Trekkers and Other Hikers

Philmont trekkers, it’s time to start some conditioning workouts to get in
shape for our big trek. And a great place to experience vertical climb is
at Cahokia Mounds! This Sunday we will meet at 1:00 pm to fit packs and do
some climbing. If anyone else is interested in joining us, please do!

Bring your backpack (trekkers try to load about 20-25 pounds into your
pack), water and a snack. Our goal is up and down the steps of Monk’s
Mound five (5) times! As we proceed, we’ll stop and work on pack

We will figure out distance for those working on hiking merit badges.

Cahokia Mounds
30 Ramsey Street

Meet in the Monk’s Mound parking lot across the street from the museum.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
