Since 1937, hundreds of Scouts and Scouters have made their way to Camp Cody by way of the Jack Voss Trail — either up three miles from Highway 50 or down a half-mile on the trail’s extension built by Jack’s son, Bill, in the late 1960s. To this day, Troop One-ers mark the route to Camp Cody with wooden posts inscribed ‘JVT’ in honor of one of the trail’s earliest hikers.
