Quivira Scout Ranch Back Country Shelters

At Quivira Scout Ranch, we have the materials set aside to build 3 back country shelters .  Back country shelters are just that trail rest spots that will be placed in historical or scenic locations.  The plan is to join all points (11 in the plan) with an expansive trail system to enhance the overall back country experience at Quivira Scout Ranch.
