Join us on this spring loop hike over the Welch-Dickey range at the southern end of NH's White Mountains, near Waterville Valley. The Welch-Dickey loop gives excellent views including Mt.Tripyramid and the Sandwich Range, and is a rewarding and moderate hike. A stop at a local watering hole afterwards is optional.

Join us for a moderately-paced loop hike that will cover two of the 4,000 footers of New Hampshire: Hancock (4420) and South Hancock (4319). The ascent will be steep and rough, and participants should have recent experience hiking in the White Mountains or in comparable terrain. There will be several brook crossings along the route, and we will travel along an old logging road for part of the ascent. Total Mileage=9.8/Total Elevation Gain=2700'/Difficult Rating=A3B
Join Morgane and Alex for some sailing on the Charles River followed by a snack potluck. Come see Boston and Cambridge from a different perspective with good company! You do not need any sailing experience for this trip. We will attempt to sail in a Sonar (a 23-foot boat).
Come join us to hike Mt. Jefferson, New Hampshire's third tallest mountain. If the weather cooperates we will have amazing 360 degree views including Mount Washington to the south. We will climb Mt. Jefferson via an out and back on Caps Ridge Trail. The total mileage will be 5 miles and the elevation gain will be 2,760 feet. Even though we will be taking the easiest route to the summit, the trail is steep, rough, and involves scrambles over ledges. This hike is not a good choice for beginners, hikers who feel uncomfortable on rock slabs, or anyone with a fear of heights.
Join AMC Boston Young Member's as we kick off the summer with a weekend of outdoor fun at AMC's Cold River Camp in North Chatham, NH.
