This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to registered participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at whp19@hb.amcboston.org or follow the link below. Join us for a day hike to 4,340 ft. Mt Field. Along the way we may also visit Mt. Avalon (3,442ft., 52 WAV) which is up a 100 yard spur path off of the main trail. The spur path has some steep ledges and the leader will determine its use based on the conditions that day.
If time and conditions permit, the group will also summit Mt. Tom (4,051 ft).
The hike without Mt. Tom will be 5.8 miles with an elevation gain of 2,400 ft. Including Mt. Tom (1.2 mi r.t., 350 ft) will bring the total distance to 7 mi with an elevation gain of 2,750 ft.
