Philip S Miller Park

Miles of trails provide many options, and the 200 step challenge hill adds a degree of difficulty.

Race to the top!


Hello, Pack 559!

For March we're inviting everyone on a new hike, Philip S Miller Park! Located in Castle Rock this park offers miles of trails and a 200 step challenge hill.

Important Reminder: YOU MUST RSVP to the Hike Leader, Karen Hashemi (email: ), if you plan on attending so we know how many to expect and who to meet up with at the amphitheater!

When: Sunday, 3/10, at 1:00PM (we're springing forward, so don't be late).

Where: Philip S Miller Park 1375 W Plum Creek Pkwy Castle Rock, CO 80109 We'll be meeting at the amphitheater.

Why: Scouts do fun stuff outdoors; We live in Colorado and it's beautiful; A Scout is Physically Strong and hiking is good exercise; Need I say loopies!

Who: All Pack 559 Scouts, their family and human friends! (please leave the furry ones at home)

Attire: Class-B uniforms (gold or new blue Pack T-Shirts) and all scouts should bring their ten outdoor essentials in a day pack. The ten essentials (eight for wolves and tigers) are an important part of the BSA motto "Be Prepared!" and should be a part of every outdoor scouting event.

The Wolf Eight Essentials are: First aid kit, Filled water bottle, Flashlight, Trail food, Sunscreen,Whistle, Rain gear, Pocket knife. The Bear and Webelos Ten Essentials are all of the above plus Map/Compass and Matches/Fire starter.
