9:00 am – Hit the trail to Camp Coxcomb

Day 1 – Will start by touring General Patton Museum. If you have never been here before, it’s worth the tour. Then at 9:00am, will hit the trail to Camp Coxcomb then to Palen Pass Road. Palen Pass has a lot of cool things to see. Will stop at Patton training cabin for lunch. You’ll see the old bombing fields, fox holes, an old bunker and a few old mines. The trail is a bit rough and bumping, but fun. Some parts might be challenging too, but not too back. Will camp at Midland Ghost Town.

Day 2 – Plan on checking out Camp Granite, Rice AFB, then to Camp Iron Mountain to check out the old chapels.
