Join us on a day hike of Mt. Eisenhower. Expect a hike of 8-10 miles with 2500-3000 ft. elevation gain. Leaders will determine exact route closer to the day of the hike. We might include another summit on our route, such as Pierce, Monroe, or Franklin. Limited to 8 experienced hikers.
Hike the Monroe, Dean, and Long Trails to the summit of Camel's Hump, which offers spectacular 360 degree views on clear days. The loop trail is 6.8 miles round trip and includes roughly 2,600 feet of elevation gain. The hike features a narrow section near the summit, so those afraid of heights should take note, but is otherwise well within the range of New England 4K footer hikes.
Alex enjoys hiking in all seasons. While best known for fast-paced single day, multi-peak mega-hikes and gnarly back country bushwhacks, he will enjoy sharing his love for the mountains just about anywhere, with hikers at all ability levels.

The fall hawk migration is one of the great wonders of the natural world. Join us 12:30 pm Sunday to hike Pack Monadnock and enjoy one of New England's best spots to watch the migration - the Pack Monadnock

Join us for a moderately paced 10.6 mile out and back hike to South, Middle and North Moat Mountains. Weather permitting we will have amazing views for miles. Both North and South Moat are on the 52WAV list. We will get an early start as this is a long hike. Plan on a full day of hiking.
Join us for a moderately fast paced 10.6 mile out and back hike to the summit of Mount Carrigain. Weather permitting we will enjoy magnificent views on both Signal Ridge and from an observation tower at the summit. With a height of 4700 feet, reaching the summit entails a 3400 foot elevation gain. The trail climbs moderately for much of its distance with steeper, rocky footing as we turn toward Signal Ridge at about the 3 mile mark. We'll get an early start as this is a long hike.

Join us for a co-sponsored hike with both the Boston and Southeastern Massachusetts Chapters. We'll be in the Blue Hills Reservation for a "Buck Hill Loop" hike. This will be at a moderate pace, on steep hills and rocky trails for 3.5 - 4 miles. The trip is not recommended for beginners! We will summit Tucker, North Boyce, and Buck Hills via the Skyline Trail and return using the Red Dot Trail. Bring snacks/lunch, water, sun screen, and insect repellent. Sturdy footwear is a must.

Please join us for a leisurely hike to the summits of Welch and Dickey Mountains, that will introduce participants new to hiking to a variety of conditions. Magnificent views from the Welch-Dickey Loop Trail (White Mountain National Forest). This loop hike in the southwest corner of the White Mountain National Forest is as close to the perfect moderate hike that you can get. It takes an average of 4 hours to casually hike this 4.4 mile loop. There are almost constant views in all directions for over half the hike
Join us for a day hike of two Maine 4,000' summits on the NE67 in the Rangeley-Stratton range. We will hike Saddleback (4,116') and The Horn (4,041') for total of 7.6 miles or 9 miles and 2,800 feet elevation gain depending on finalized approach. Plan on a 5-8 hour hike. This is a great mountain to hike along the AT as it follows the ridge, with Saddleback and The Horn being only 1.6 miles apart. On a clear day, both summits have breath-taking 360 degree views of the lakes region. We may also be able to pick blueberries at higher elevations.

I have been an active member of the AMC for a handful of years. I am slowly completing the NH 48 and NE 67. No rush the mountains will still be there. I enjoy hiking, biking, x-c skiing, downhill and sailing.
We're headed up to the Green Mountains! Join us Friday - Sunday, September 20-22 , for a fun car camp weekend and an opportunity to enjoy the best hikes in Vermont. On Friday night, we have reserved a campsite at Little River State Park in Woodbury, VT. Although not required, we recommend joining us Friday night since the travel time from Boston is approx. 3 hrs 45 min. On Saturday, we will hike Vermont's highest peak, Mt. Mansfield (4,393 ft), on a 6.3-mile loop and an elevation gain of about 2,800 ft.
