Daniel's Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project

The Great Spirit Path

About me

My name is Daniel Kopisch. I'm 15 years old and currently attend Menlo-Atherton High School. As a Life Scout I serve in my troop as a Troop Guide. I like the outdoors and activities that take place in nature - such as camping, hiking, orienteering, fishing, boating, sailing, and swimming.

This photo shows me (on right) with my twin brother at one of the rock sculptures in Bedwell Bayfront Park in our home town Menlo Park.

This summer I will walk the whole John Muir Trail from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney to raise funds for my Eagle Scout Project. I'm planning to hike the distance of roughly 22o miles in 23 days.

After completion of my hike I will post for each day my experience together with photos that I will have taken on the trail.

Thank you for considering to support my Eagle Scout project by sponsoring my hike.
