This trip is ONLY available to participants of the Spring Hiking Program. No matter where you go, what trail you hike or how long your trip takes, your boot fit is crucial to an enjoyable experience. Choosing the right hiking boots is a process of savvy matchmaking. Join us at REI Boston (near Fenway) after work so that you can learn more about boots and try a few on. There will also be AMC leaders available to answer your questions (on boots or other gear). Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to walk home with a pair of hiking boots after tonight but we hope that you will be better informed on the type of boot that will meet your needs.
Morgane is a 4-season leader and has been leading trips with the AMC since 2016. She usually does day hikes and hikes at a moderate pace. She is currently working on her NH 4000 footers. She speaks fluent French if you ever want to get some practice on the trail!
Casey leads trips year around for the hiking/backpacking committee 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
