Join us for some great hiking, socializing, and fun with the family. Summer hiking is awesome with beautiful views and warm temperatures. Hikes will be designed to fit the ages and interests of the kids including a hike up Mt. Willard (3.2 miles RT) with gorgeous views down into Crawford Notch; a classic "big bang for your buck" hike. More challenging hikes (Mt. Tom, Mt. Avalon or Peirce are possible summits depending on participants' interest and abilities. There's also waterfalls and local rivers to visit for sunbathing, swimming and picnics. We will stay at the 16-bed Shapleigh Bunkhouse which is coed, heated, and includes bathrooms/showers, linens, and a common area. Dinners will be prepared by the group at the bunkhouse.
