Join us for a reunion weekend for students and instructors of the 2019 Boston Spring Leadership Program. We'll reunite at the rustic Harvard Cabin off Route 16 south of Pinkham Notch for a weekend of hiking and other activities. We'll organize day hikes for various abilities for Saturday and Sunday, meals and other activities, and time to chill, catch up and exchange notes on our co-leading experiences. Our goals for this weekend include:
1)Do some hiking and spend quality time outdoors
2)Renew and strengthen bonds and friendships made this spring
I am a lifelong hiker and outdoor enthusiast who recently began hiking in the White Mountains and co-leading with the AMC. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge and love of the outdoors with you.
Mt. Twins are in the northern portion of the Pemigewasset Wilderness. South Twin ( 4902 ft.) is the highest peak of Twin Range and the 8th highest mountain in New Hampshire. South Twin and North Twin (4761 ft.) provide a panoramic view of the Pemi loop, the nearby Franconia Range to the west and southwest, and the Presidential Range off to the northeast. The view also includes the entire Pemigewassett Wilderness and the Sandwich Range beyond it. This is a traverse of South Twin and North Twin and it requires car spotting.
Linda Haines has been an alpine skier most of her life, adding nordic skiing in 2005 to her hiking, biking, running, skiing/snowshoeing passions. She's a certified running coach, has been a full AMC hiking/backpacking leader since 2012 and is now adding AMC biking, skiing and Adventure Travel leadership. She's hiked the NH 4Ks, Banff/Jasper, Bryce/Zion/Escalante, Tetons, and the Swiss Alps and tries to do new ski/hike/bike/run adventures each year, leading groups or on her own.
I have been hiking since I was a college student at my country, then couple of years ago I started hiking in the White Mountain. I love white water kayaking as well. In general, I am a nature lover.
Join us for an out and back 18+ mile day hike to Owl's Head (NH4K). This beautiful, long day hike requires experienced, conditioned hikers who are comfortable with elevation gains of 3,400 feet (1,500' in less than a mile), long distances of 18+ miles, full packs, and several serious water crossings. Water/weather conditions will be monitored and may cause the hike to be postponed. This is a very rewarding hike in the remote and protected Pemigewasset Wilderness area with lots of history, fauna, mileage, elevation, and post-hike bragging rights.
Mount Moosilauke (elev. 4,802 ft) is the westernmost 4,000-footer in the White Mountains. It is known for its spacious summit, with more than 100 acres above tree line, which on a clear day affords panoramic views of the many other 4000-footers in NH, as well as west to the mountains of Vermont and north to Canada. Mt. Moosilauke is the tallest 4000-footer between Franconia Notch and the Connecticut River Valley.

Join us for Fall Folliage galore at AMC Carter Notch Hut, our eastern most hut and best kept secret, with its intimate and unimaginably beautiful setting in a notch with some of the finest scenery in the region; a world of towering cliffs and tranquil mountain lakes; the steep faces of Wildcat to the west and Carter Dome to the east; and two glacial tarns. We will hike in via 19 mile brook trail (3.8 miles, 2,050 ft.) carrying our sleeping bags, lunch and snacks, and water. This is a great way to introduce your kids to backpacking without needing to bring along a tent.

Enjoy turkey w/cranberry sauce and pecan pie with a small group of families at AMC Lonesome Lake Hut the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This is a great trip for families with some experience hiking! We hike 1.6 miles, (950 ' elevation gain) to the hut at a kid-friendly pace. Late fall hiking is awesome with views unobstructed by leaves, cool temperatures, and no bugs. We carry our sleeping bags, lunches and snacks, water and mountain gear. The group carries in supplies for dinner and breakfast and prepares it together in the hut kitchen.
