Celebrate "National Summit Day" with Young Members and start your August off right with a scenic car camping/hiking weekend in the Whites. The group will meet up Friday evening at a campground in New Hampshire, giving us the chance to get on the trail early the next day. We will climb Mt. Madison at a moderate pace over 8.2 miles and 4,050 feet of elevation. Saturday night we will return to the campsite for campfire, dinner, and relaxing. Sunday we will offer an easier hike (1-3 miles) with an option to go swimming. Cost for the trip is $20 for members, $25 for non-members, which includes Saturday dinner, and two breakfasts, snacks, campground fees and firewood. Participants should bring lunches for both days.
This hike is limited to 8 participants. (Note our campsite is shared with 2 other YM groups we will share food but split up for hikes.)
Zoe enjoys hiking, biking, and running. She's currently working on organizing a car camping weekend in the White and is one of the Couch to 4K coordinators.
Kelleigh is an AMC leader, working on her 48 list, and will most likely make a reference to Parks & Recreation within the first hour of every hike.
