Pam Wilmot

I love to hike and backpack, and lead all kinds of trips from beginner, to extra-long day hikes like a single day presi traverse, to multi-day backpacks and bushwhacks. I even lead trips overseas for the Adventure travel committee. It's all good! I've hiked the 100 Highest peaks in NE, the NH 4000 footers in winter, and hope to someday hike a long trail like the PCT or the AT.

Carl is an avid hiker who enjoys, mostly, day hikes in the Whites. He has completed the New England 100 Highest Peaks, two circuits of the New Hampshire 4,000 Footers and over 40 of the New Hampshire 4,000 Footers in Winter. Please read the trip description carefully, if it says 'Peak Bagger' or 'experienced hiker', the trip is goal oriented and will not be suitable for beginners. Otherwise, we'll be out for enjoyment and the chance to take in whatever life on the trail has to offer.
