This trip is ONLY available to participants of the Spring Hiking Program. Join us in the middle of the week after work for a conditioning hike in the Middlesex Fells (Fells). Show up for one or all three hikes in the series. Your choice! There is no screening for this hike. Everyone is welcome to join, but you must sign up on REGI. The main goals of this hike are to get your heart pumping, figure out your fitness level, and start (or continue) getting fit so that you can enjoy the later hikes in the SHP even more! If you have some of your hiking gear already (boots, daypack, layers, etc.), feel free to bring it along and try it out. If you don't have your gear yet, that's ok! Just come in your sneakers and workout clothes and join us for a workout. The Fells are a great place to work out in. There are some nice up-and-down rock scrambles for stretching legs and testing boot grip, fantastic views of Boston, and the remains of the 1899 MIT Geodetic Observatory. We'll plan to hike for an hour and a half given the short amount of daylight at that time of year. Post hike, we'll grab dinner at a nearby restaurant for those interested.
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
