Eriu Hike, Ballinastoe Woods to JB Malone, Feb 2018

Eriú News

Despite the chilly, damp day, 15 enthusiastic cubs and their leaders set off on the first hike of the new season from Ballinastoe Woods, up over White Hill, in low cloud but in high spirits thanks in part to some lovely snow flurries. Aoife and Juliette even managed to make a small snowball!  Everyone enjoyed lunch and warm drinks at the boardwalk and the sun appeared as the cubs trekked along the boardwalk to the JB Malone Memorial where the cubs enjoyed stunning views down over Lough Tay. Then with the cubs singing and laughing, it was downhill all the way on the forest trail back to the carpark.
