Alex Nedzel

Alex enjoys hiking in all seasons. While best known for fast-paced single day, multi-peak mega-hikes and gnarly back country bushwhacks, he will enjoy sharing his love for the mountains just about anywhere, with hikers at all ability levels.

Elizabeth Ryan

Elizabeth Ryan is a four-season hiking and backpacking leader with the AMC's Boston Chapter as well as the coordinator for the chapter's Spring Hiking Program. She has completed the New Hampshire 4000 footers, hiked in the Baxter park area and explored some of the glaciated North-west peaks. Upcoming trips include hiking in the Scottish Highlands and Iceland.

Jonathan Niehof

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
