Winter Hike to Mt Carrigain

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through April 30.

Trip dates: Saturday, March 7, 2020 12:00 AM

Join us for a winter hike to the summit tower of Mt Carrigain, and enjoy the view from its summit tower. We'll maintain a moderate pace, but this trip requires you to be in good physical condition, due to its length and net climb. Due to normal winter road closures, this will be a long and scenic 14 mile hike, with a 2 mile (each way) road to the summer trailhead. Depending on conditions, and the size of our group, there's a good chance we'll need our headlamps on the way out. We expect this to be primarily a snowshoe, but the hike normally warrants microspikes in sections, and sometimes warrants crampons.
