Giant Whitepine Campground is named after a 600-year-old white pine that died in 1998 and was cut down in 1999. It is still lying in the campground as a reminder of its existence. The campground is densely forested and is paved throughout.

The Scouts and Cub Scouts will be participating in a flag retirement ceremony at Bro. Mellor's residence. All Scouts and Cub Scouts will meet at the Church Bldg as usual and return to the Church when finished. Adult leaders will drive youth to and from the Mellor residence.

  • Scouts should wear their uniform if they have one.

  • Bring refreshments for afterward.

We start the day with a wood delivery then head to the Stevens Creek Trailhead in the Iller Creek Conservation Area just South of Spokane. 

We are delivering one cord of wood Saturday morning. The pickup location for the wood is at Harold and Patti Wilkinson's residence located at 1852 Elberton RD Garfield, WA. The drop location for the wood is at Kelley Messinger's residence at 581 Trestle Creek RD, Thornton, WA. 

After the wood delivery is complete we will continue North to the Stevens Creek Trailhead for a 3-mile roundtrip hike. The trail is moderately steep up the ridge. Along the hike, we will see the iconic Big Rock and Rocks of Sharon in the Dishman Hills with spectacular views of the Palouse.
