The Pacific Skyline Council Camps Historic Trail is a 12.4 mile hike linking the three camps of the old San Mateo County Council that were located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It follows existing trails from Camp Pescadero situated in Memorial Park to Camp Pomponio in the heart of Pescadero Creek County Park to the boundary of Big Basin State Park and along China Grade Historic Trail medal – Pacific Skyline Camps Trail into Cutter Scout Reservation. Although it is nicely shaded under a forest cover for most of its length, the trail is moderately strenuous due to a long climb up Butano Ridge and has a net elevation gain of +1730 feet from start to finish. A patch and medal may be earned for completing the hike.
