My troop did it quite a few years ago, rode from White Haven to Jim Thorpe where we were picked up. If you are taking a wide range of boys, 20-25 miles should be your max. My troop did the lower Grand Canyon trail last spring and it was hard riding for the younger scouts when we go close to the 20 mile mark. When the younger scouts start to drag, it affects everyone. One option we used before was to break up in two groups and let the older scouts ride a longer distance.
Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.
