Millie finds it hard to remember life before hiking. Her passion is backpacking for weeks on end, but any day on any trail will do just fine. She has hiked Vermont's Long Trail End-to-End 9 times, completed and AT thru-hike in 2005, and hiked NH 4000's in all seasons twice. Currently she is found most often leading for AMC's family group or outdoors with her dog or friends.

Join us for a long weekend of intermediate day hikes in and around Crawford Notch. We will stay in the heated, comfortable Shapleigh Bunkhouse at the Highland Center, and do any of a number of hikes (including 4000 footers) in the area. The hikes will be chosen by the leaders to suit the conditions and participants with a leaning toward scenic beauty and stopping to enjoy the woods and views as well as time to take photos and discuss photography (you don't have to be a photographer to come).
Dan can be found hiking in the White Mountains in all seasons. He combines his love of the mountains with a love for photography and will always be seen lugging a large camera over his shoulder and taking many photos.

the picturesque Ammonoosuc Ravine trail past amazing waterfalls to
Lakes of the Clouds Hut. If weather permits we will summit Mt
Washington . The next day we will traverse the open ridge, summiting
Mt Monroe and Mt Eisenhower and hike down to our car spot. Cost of
$138.47 includes one night hut stay with dinner and breakfast. Please
Journey across the ridge with just the moonlight to light your way on the light night of the April full moon. We are planning a near full moon hike across Little Haystack-Lincoln-Lafayette up Falling Waters Trail and down Old Bridle Path. Approximately 2 miles of this hike is above treeline. On a clear night, it will offer spectacular views of the moonlight reflecting off the Franconia Range. Winter hiking experience is recommended. This trip requires microspikes and be prepared to bring your snowshoes. If you have binoculars, they will be excellent for star gazing.
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.
Join us for a post-winter, shoulder season hike up North (4420 ft) and South (4319 ft) Hancock - named in honor of John Hancock, the first patriot to sign the Declaration of Independence. Although their summit views are partly restricted and the ridge between them is densely wooded, the mountains have long held an aura of mystery and inaccessibility that offers a wilderness flavor not found on the more popular White Mountain hikes.
Are you and your family ready for the fun and adventure to stay overnight at an AMC hut? Join us over Spring Break for an overnight at AMC Lonesome Lake Hut! This is a great trip for families with some experience hiking! We will hike 1.6miles, (950 ' elevation gain) to the hut at a kid friendly pace. Along the way we stop for snacks, look at nature, and enjoy the views. At the hut, we have free time to explore, enjoy the breathtaking views of the Franconia Ridge across the pristine glacial lake, or relax. Come nightfall we might catch sunset.
Hike up Mt Moosilauke (4802') via Gorge Brook Trail, loop via Glenn Cliff, and Snapper trail. Conditions permitting we may also head up South Peak, which has a great view of the main summit. There is a 1.5 mile road walk to get to Gorge Brook Trailhead, and the full loop including the road walk will be approximately 10 miles.
We will need to prepare with full winter gear (including: crampons, face protection, microspikes, etc.), because some of this hike is fully exposed.
Casey leads trips year around for the hiking/backpacking committee of the AMC Boston Chapter. He often leads 3 Season and is heavily engaged in the H/B leadership and training programs such as Spring/Fall Leadership Training as well as our educational programs in the Spring and Winter Hiking Programs. Like other hiker that hike before sun up and after sun down and do 20+ miles, Casey likes to do the same only keep it under 10 miles :) He's experienced but not a speed daemon.
Usher in the first weekend of Spring by summiting three, 4,000 footers in the Carter-Moriah range. Weather and trail conditions permitting, we will summit Carter Dome 4,832 feet, Middle Carter, 4,610 feet and South Carter 4,430 feet covering approximately 13 miles while gaining 4,700 feet of elevation. Depending on trail and weather conditions, we estimate the likely duration of the hike to be between 10 and 12 hours.
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.
