Hikers near Glacier Lake in the Tahoe National Forest will be able to find their way, thanks to trail signs installed by Andy Schmidl of Davis as part of his Eagle Scout project. The signs had weathered and deteriorated to the point that they were very difficult to read, Schmidl said.

He and several other Scouts from Davis’ Troop 66 made two trips to the area to replace the signs. On the first, they surveyed the signs and on the second they replaced them with the new signs. Schmidl and his fellow Scouts replaced 21 signs in total over a wide area of land.

Glacier Lake is at 7,400 feet elevation. The distance from the trailhead to the lake is 9 miles and the first time Schmidl and his troop visited the area, they were unable to find the lake.

The Rotary Club of Davis has sponsored Troop 66 since the 1920s. Schmidl and his father, Scoutmaster Kurt Schmidl, attended a recent Rotary meeting to talk about the project and thank Rotarians for their ongoing support.

The club meets for lunch meetings on most Mondays at noon at the Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St. For membership information, contact Andrew Dowling at Andrew@daviscalifornia.com or visit www.rotaryclubofdavis.com.
