Do you like hiking? Do you like hanging out with friends by a fireplace, drinking hot cocoa, eating good food? Then this is the weekend hiking trip for you!

We will be offering hiking at various levels both Saturday and Sunday. If you have winter appropriate hiking gear you are welcomed to join us (options to rent snowshoes/ winter hiking boots).

We have rented out the entire Notch Hostel which includes a common room, little library (with information about the area, games, and books about hikes and hiking), dining room, bed with clean bedding in the shared bunk room, full kitchen, plus shower rooms and toilets. Delicious meals will be provided and are served family style in a warm, social atmosphere.

No car? no worries - leaders will help organize carpools. Anyone young at heart is welcomed and encouraged to join us on this trip.

Casey Ajalat

Casey leads trips year around for the hiking/backpacking committee and is an active co-leader mentor of the AMC Boston Chapter. He 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 hikers 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.
