Contents

The purpose of the Historic Trails Award is to bring appreciation to the ideals, principles, and traditions that have made our country strong; requirements emphasize cooperation between historic societies and Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Venturing crews, and Sea Scout ships, which should establish a close relationship with a local society as soon as possible when planning a historic activity—most communities have such societies.

The Historic Trails Award may be earned by youth and adult members of a Cub Scout pack, Boy Scout troop, Venturing crew, or Sea Scout ship for hiking a trail listed in Nationally Approved Historic Trails and completing a project related to the trail.

Note: Only chartered units may apply for this award. This award does not apply if any other BSA award is available for this trip.

Historic Trails Award requirements

To earn the award, members of your unit must plan and participate in a historic activity. A unit historic activity requires members to:

  1. Locate a historic trail or site and study information relating to it. (The information may be obtained from an adult historic society, public library, or people living near the trail or site.)
  2. Hike or camp two days and one night along the trail or in the vicinity of the site.
  3. Cooperate with an adult group such as a historic society to restore and mark all or part of this trail or site. (This may be done during the hike or overnight camp.) Or cooperate with such a group to plan and stage a historic pageant, ceremony, or other public event related to this trail or site—such event should be large enough to merit coverage by the local press.
  4. Your unit leader must then file the Historic Trails Award application with your council service center.

Note: Only chartered units may apply for this award. This award does not apply if any other BSA award is available for this trip.
