This trip is ONLY available to participants of the Spring Hiking Program. Summits aren't the only rewarding hike destinations! Expand your hiking experience with a trip to Thoreau Falls. This 10.7 mile hike will feature a visit to scenic Ethan Pond, and culminate with a relaxing midhike break at Thoreau Falls before returning to the trailhead. The waterfall is long, powerful, and set in a wonderfully remote and pleasing setting, with fine views to nearby mountains, making it a great place to stop! Hikers should be prepared for 10.7 miles and 2150 feet of elevation gain, and for a long day to allow for some time to enjoy the falls. Hikers should ideally have participated in at least one other SHP or recent hike of 5+ miles to be comfortable with this distance.

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
