This Day In History: 1949-03-26
Boy Scouts of Troop 50 enjoyed a hike in Hariman Park. They started at the foot of Lake Stahehe, hiked to the Bald Rock Shelter via the Donderberg Trail and had lunch. Afterwards they traveled the A.S.B. Trail to the Appalachian Trail, through the “lemon squeezer” and then around Island Pond to the Boston Mine. Each of the scouts obtained a sample of magnetite at the abandoned shaft. They then hiked down the Old Pond Road to Green Pond and then to the Seven Lakes Drive where they were picked up.
