Big Boy Scout Service Project

The Boy Scouts of America's largest service project in more than half a century shifts to western Virginia next week.

Some 750 Scouts staying at Goshen Scout Camp will begin work Monday on more than 63 miles of trails in the George Washington and Jefferson national forests. The project is one of five across the nation.

The Scouts are all members of the organization's Order of the Arrow, an honor society of seasoned campers.

U.S. Forest Service spokesman Mike Tripp says it would take workers several years to accomplish what the Scouts are undertaking in Virginia.

He says the Scouts will build 12 miles of new trails and repair others in the Alleghany Highlands Multi-User Trail System, as well as construct several campsites.
