Some Boy Scouts have learned the hazards of hiking the Appalachian Trail in a remote area of Nelson County. A group of at least eight scouts from Amherst County had to be rescued Sunday afternoon from a snow-covered area around Montebello. Nelson County Emergency Services has told the Lynchburg News & Advance the scouts called for help because they were unprepared for the weather. They found up to five inches of snow in an area that was inaccessible to four-wheel drive vehicles. Emergency responders led the scouts to safety, and the boys went back home to Amherst. The Nelson Sheriff’s Office, Montebello Fire and Rescue, and the National Park Service responded to the calls for help.
