Local Walks/Hikes

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Welcome to the AMC Boston Chapter Local Walks & Hikes homepage!



(after clicking on above link, just scroll down to see the listings)


We lead day walks and hikes year-round, primarily in eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. From exploring city neighborhoods, to nature talks/walks, on to moderate half day hikes in conservation lands and more challenging full day expeditions, we have something for all who enjoy walking and hiking, plus snowshoeing, weather permitting! The pace is usually moderate, allowing participants to socialize as they walk.  

In the past our walks were mostly  "show and go" and registration was not required.  However, AMC's new COVID-19 regulations require registration.

There are so many places to explore in our region. Local Walks & Hikes is a great way to get to know these trails and to meet others. There are numerous ways to get involved, from going on hikes, to becoming a leader, to joining the Local Walks & Hikes Committee.

Please contact me (localwalks@amcboston.org) with feedback, questions, or if you are interested in volunteering. I hope you will join us!                                         

Happy trails,
