Join us for a night at Zealand Hut, one of AMC's easiest huts to access. The hut, with co-ed bunkrooms, is spectacularly situated on the side of Zealand Valley near Zealand Falls at the northern end of the Pemigewasset wilderness. We will hike in via the Zealand trail (2.8 miles, 650 ft. gain) with additional optional explorations including a 4K peak. Carry your sleeping bag, lunches and snacks, water and gear. The group will carry in supplies for dinner and breakfast and prepare it together in the hut kitchen. This trip is appropriate for children > 4 years with adults who can hike 2.8 miles on a relatively flat trail. Cost: $67 per participant. Note: in the unlikely situation that the road in remains closed due to lingering snow, the hike in may be an additional 2.5 miles.
