This trip is ONLY available to participants of the Spring Hiking Program. This hike is part of the Spring Hiking Program and is open to all registered participants and AMC members. It is an opportunity for participants to get outside with experienced AMC leaders and enjoy a minimally demanding hike. This hike will also offer the opportunity for participants to test their hiking gear and physical ability, ask the leaders questions about hiking in the AMC, and to get to know other program participants in a pleasant, casual way. Participants can expect to hike approximately 7 miles and gain 1000 feet of elevation gain. Participants should bring water, snacks and lunch. Estimated hiking time, depending on the group and conditions, is 5-6 hours.
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
