One of many trails on Manastash Ridge, the Boy Scout trail allows hikers to create loops or alternate routes to the summit of Manastash Ridge. 

Beginning from the trailhead at Cove Road, hike up the old jeep road and over an irrigation ditch. Here, there's a sign showing an incomplete map of the area. The Boy Scout trail is west of the Westberg Trail (Manastash's most popular route to the summit). 

Take the rightmost trail, and follow it along the base of a ridge. Soon come to another fork. The right trail here is the Prater Trail, while a left puts you on the Boy Scout Trail. Stay in the valley of a ravine, climbing gently through small stands of pines and into one known as the Grove of the Patriarchs. 

About a mile from the top, the trail makes a left in a grove of trees and heads up a hillside, climbing steeply to reach a ridge. From here, turn right. It's a straight shot along the right to the summit of Manastash Ridge.
