Boy Scouts from Troop 210 install posts and signs at the designated campsite at Johnson Lake, Seward Ranger District.

Boy Scout Troop 210 backpacked the Johnson Pass Trail on the Seward Ranger District, Chugach National Forest, on a very rainy weekend this past August. As part of a summer service project for the district, they installed posts and signs at the Johnson Lake designated campsite.
 

This 23-mile, multi-use trail extends from mile 64 on the Seward Highway in the north to mile 32.5 on the Seward Highway in the south. The trail is mostly forested for the first 4 miles on the north end and first 10 miles on the south end. The higher middle section is mostly open subalpine terrain of meadows and brushy areas with views of nearby mountains. Elevation gains are gradual with a few steep sections. Snow can remain at higher elevations until mid June.
