A pack of Cub Scouts got an eyeful at the end of their hike when they ended up at a nude beach.

Scout officials say the boys, ages 9 and 10, “encountered some individuals who were inappropriately dressed,” reports NBC.

The Scouts were hiking along the San Diego coastline on Jan. 24 and ended up at Black’s Beach, which is where they encountered the naked sunbathers.

The official statement from the San Diego-Imperial Council said the group was “quickly rerouted” to “protect the youth.”
