50 Miler

This primary objective is to simulate Boy Scout, Varsity Scout and Venturer interest in the ideal of the Scouting movement and to promote activity that will result in personal activity that result in personal fitness, self reliance, knowledge of wood lore and a practical understanding of conservation.

Chartered unit participation is most desirable; however, provisional groups are eligible. This award does not apply if any other available for a trip such as the Historic Trails Award. During the trip a service project must also be conducted of at least 10 hours.

The unit or provisional group must follow these rules for a 50-Miler trip:

  • Select a suitable trail or waterway.
  • Adult leaders older than 21 must make the entire trip.

If the trip is 500 miles or more from homes of group members (local council camp excepted) or crosses national boundaries and into the territory of other nations, a National Tour Permit Application, No. 4419A, is necessary. For trips and overnight camps less than 500 miles, use a Local Tour Permit Application, No.4426.
