I'd be tempted to send them a note saying that WE'LL be there then and
come back with details on what the state of the bridges, trails, etc. ARE!
Since they haven't the staff and time to determine what the conditions are,
they should appreciate receiving data from a troop of Boy Scouts, especially
if they would take the time to brief them on what data they need.
What say you other scouters?
