On November 21, we took nine girls and three leaders from Girl Scout Troop 10423 for a “bike and hike” in The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. This was the second ride this year for this eager group of girls. Kathy Frank was our ride leader. They rode up to the Aptos Creek Trail along the fire road, and from there hiked to the Epicenter, and then up to the bridge crossing at Big Slide. Everyone had a blast, and they can’t wait to do it again. Below, is the thank you note from their troop leader Nancy Gere.


On behalf of me, the girls, and adults who chaperoned today’s ride, thank you so much!! We loved it. It is so good for the soul to get out in the woods and go on an adventure! All the girls had positive things to say; even the ones who were tentative at first said they really enjoyed it. Thank you for coordinating this amazing day and for your flexibility with us this morning.

We’re looking forward to the next ride!
