WHP Participants ONLY: Mt. Field and possibly Mt. Tom Day Hike (Level 1)
AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
