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. To obtain a trail listing, contact the Outdoor Programs/Properties Department at 972-580-7889.)
  2. Hike or camp two days and one night along the trail or in the vicinity of the site. Options include an area hotel or the home of other Scouts.
  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 siteā€”such an event should be large enough to merit coverage by the local press.

Your unit leader must then file the Historic Trails Award application with your local 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.
